Active Transport Strategy

Walking, wheeling and cycling aren’t just healthier ways to get around, they make our community safer and reduce our impact on the environment. While we’ve been making a lot of pedestrian safety upgrades recently, an Active Transport Strategy would help us improve pedestrian and cycling infrastructure throughout the whole Borough.

An Active Transport Strategy will help Council:

  • ensure key destinations are connected by cycling and pedestrian networks
  • upgrade infrastructure in a planned way, rather than with one-off improvements
  • understand and remove barriers to walking, wheeling and cycling in the Borough
  • improve the safety and accessibility of our pedestrian and cycling networks.

Community input will help us identify key issues and priorities for our pedestrian and cycling network. Whether you have a footpath gap you want to share with us or a great idea to encourage cycling, wheeling and walking, we want to hear your ideas.
