Glasgow City Council is consulting on its draft Active Travel Strategy and would love to hear your views on it. With just three weeks of the consultation left to run, please help shape the final strategy by completing the short consultation survey.
The draft ‘Glasgow’s Active Travel Strategy 2022-2031’ sets out the vision to significantly increase walking, wheeling and cycling across Glasgow over the next ten years; defining how active travel contributes to the transport needs and wider outcomes for the city, including helping to achieve the target of net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
The strategy is shaped by three policy and action areas:
- Connectivity, People and Place – a rebalancing of our streets and spaces – which has a focus on networks and infrastructure in our street environments.
- Unlocking Change – enabling everyone to walk, wheel or cycle – focussing on training and education and working collaboratively in our communities.
- Thinking Differently – encouraging, motivating and sustaining change – through communications and promotions and inspiring people through a range of larger events and other activities.
A key output to be delivered will be the City Network, which will provide an accessible and safe active travel network across Glasgow, connecting local neighbourhoods with key amenities and services, such as education, business, retail and culture. You can view the network and comment on the proposals here.
The ATS consultation closes on Monday 22nd November.
