Active Travel Schemes
We have been taking action to help create a sustainable environment locally. In 2020 and 2021 we implemented trial measures as part of a wider effort to support and encourage walking and cycling. These measures were funded by Government's active travel fund. The active travel fund aims to increase cycling and walking in the longer term in line with Government objectives set out in Gear Change.
Many of these schemes were implemented under Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders allowing residents, businesses and visitors the opportunity to experience the changes and to comment on them before the decision was made on whether to make each scheme permanent or removed.
Information about each of the trial schemes and their outcomes is available below.
