Active travel: walking and cycling

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.


Active travel refers to:

  • walking
  • scooting
  • cycling and
  • Park and Stride

The Council promotes active travel as a healthy and sustainable means of transport.

School Active Travel toolkit

Active Travel (including Park and Stride) can complement other measures that schools have in place to manage a safe return to school. Encouraging students to walk, scoot and cycle can help reduce pressure on space as they arrive and leave.  It also reduces congestion and air pollution at the school gate.

Check out the Sustrans Active Travel toolkit.  The toolkit includes guidance and bespoke resources for schools, parents and students.
