There should be a cyclable route along the coast south from here to Snettisham and Dersingham to encourage active travel to and from Hunstanton.

Should be at the very least cycle lanes along this busy section of road.

Clear signs needed to make sure people know to turn left here, especially as the barrier on to Priory Lane east of here is impassible on a cycle with bags.

Have you tried cycling anywhere around here. It's impossible to cross in either direction if you are even in the slightest bit nervous. A terrible set of circumstances for cyclists. Uphill, narrow roads, all types of vehicles, driven at ... [more]

The path here, all the way to Snettisham, is broken down, crumbling, unfit for purpose. Widen & resurfacing req. Once in a generation chance to provide cycleway & pedestrian footpath to connect 3 villages & a town. And create a bigger, safe ... [more]

Cycle path ends here! Continue path north to around edge of roundabout. Create low sleeping policeman crossing here to connect to existing cycle path up Redgate Hill to next roundabout. The current alternative is to cut leaving cycle pa ... [more]

Dangerous zone. Road narrows to junctions & 90° blind corner. Widen for pedestrians & cyclists alike.

Large Cycle storage (Family locker & single sizes). Can be monitored via camera on Council Building.

The promenade between Heacham and Hunstanton should be equipped for cycling, it's wide enough. A lot of towns have shared spaces for walkers and cyclists.

The road from the Dersingham roundabout to the cycle way is really unpleasant to cycle at anytime. If there was a cycleway it would complete a comfortable route from Hunstanton to King's Lynn ( rather than the longer and winding existing cy ... [more]

Sensible scheme to slow cars at the junction - but why not put in some cycle parking for the Burnham Market Stores across the road?

It is not possible to walk or cycle safely along any section of this road. Permissive bridleways alongside this route would be of massive benefit

Parking on yellow zig-zags. Make them enforceable by erecting 'no waiting' signs.

Overhanging bushes and trees have made the path narrow on both sides of the road. Dangerous at school times. Needs pruning and hedging taken back to make paths wider

The pavement along the main road is tiny. It’s a main route for most of the village to walk/bike to school and sometimes I feel scared of my child’s safety when a lorry or bus comes by. One wrong move would mean they are on the road. Th ... [more]

Half of pavement is just mud can the pavement be widened please

No footpath or cycleway South Runcton to Runcton Holme
