A bid to get more people on their bikes across Great Yarmouth and Gorleston and make the towns easier to walk around has taken a step forward.
On Monday night the Great Yarmouth Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan was approved by borough councillors.
The longest of the seven cycling routes is 10.5km from the Outer Harbour to Caister.
The other routes include from Yarmouth town centre to Bure Park, routes to Beacon Business Park and from Gorleston to Bradwell.
The plan's walking routes cover both town centres and connecting coastal villages together such as Bradwell to Belton.
It has been drawn up as a collaboration between the borough council and Norfolk County Council to help draw government funding.
On Monday night the borough council's economic development committee agreed to validate the plan before its submission to the Department of Transport.
