Overview

In September 2014, the Welsh Government introduced the Active Travel (Wales) Act which makes it a legal requirement for local authorities in Wales to map and plan for suitable routes for active travel within certain settlements in the county borough, as designated by the Welsh Government.

Active Travel means walking and cycling (including electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters) for everyday short-distance journeys, such as journeys to school, work, or for access to shops, services and bus/rail stations. Active travel does not include journeys made purely for recreation or social reasons.

The first stage of the act required local authorities to produce ‘Existing Routes Maps’ (ERMs) to show existing routes in the borough that the council considered suitable for active travel. The ERMs therefore do not show all of the available walking and cycling routes within an area.

Details of the ERMs, which have been approved by Welsh Government, can be found here.

The second stage of the Act requires the Council to produce Integrated Network Maps (INMs) that set out the local authority’s plans to develop a network of active travel routes and facilities over the next 15 years. Bridgend County Borough Council is now seeking your views on the walking and cycling proposals that have been developed. 

Our draft Active Travel INM can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
