Active Travel 2015

Consultation documents


In September 2014, the Welsh Government introduced the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 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 specified by the Welsh Government.

Active Travel means walking and cycling for everyday short-distance journeys, such as journeys to school, work, or for access to shops or services. Active travel does not include journeys purely made for recreation or social reasons.

The first stage of the act requires local authorities to produce ‘existing routes maps’ that have to be submitted to the Welsh Government by 22 January 2016. The maps are used to show existing routes in the borough that the council consider suitable for active travel by the Welsh Government standards.

Bridgend County Borough Council would like you to share your views on active travel routes that you use, and which routes you would might like to see developed in the future.
