Walking and Cycling

Reducing the need to travel by car is vital to the success of the development and transport plans, but there are also considerable health benefits to a strategy that encourages walking and cycling.

The aim is to provide a high quality network of routes that encourage use particularly for journeys to the town centre, to work, to school and college, to the stations and for a healthy outdoor leisure activity.

In this section of the website there are details on cycleroutes and future cycling plans and news on a new scheme introduced to encourage school children to cycle.
