Shotley Peninsula Cycling Campaign
The Shotley Peninsula Cycling Campaign was set up in 2010 to improve and increase the amount of cycling on the Shotley peninsula by making it easier and safer.
Their aim is to create a safe off-road community path for cyclists, walkers, and wheelchair users between the Shotley Peninsula and Ipswich, and linking the villages on the peninsula.
This is an ambitious project which we are planning to tackle in stages. The first stage is the main “spine” of the network which will run largely along the route of the B1456 between Shotley Gate and Bourne Bridge on the edge of Ipswich.

Progress on the proposed Community Path (March 2013)
The creation of a largely traffic-free path suitable for cyclists, walkers, and wheel-chair users, from Bourne Bridge on the edge of Ipswich, along the B1456 corridor and down to Shotley Gate remains our main priority. We are continuing to make very good progress on agreeing the route, especially at the Ipswich and Shotley ends.
However, the outcome of the current Planning Application to redevelop the former HMS Ganges site at Shotley is likely to have a significant bearing on the development of the path; until this application is determined by Babergh District Council, possibly in the next 2 to 3 months, it is difficult to finalise our plans. However, we will keep you fully posted on this.
