The East of England is the perfect place to create the future of Active Travel
Promoting the switch from private car to active travel can support our decarbonisation ambitions
The Government has set a target of 50% of all trips in urban areas to be made by walking, cycling, and wheeling and we share that ambition.
This can be achieved in the region by:
- Providing choices for people in the region to make more journeys through walking and cycling will help meet net zero carbon emission targets
- Having access to good data and analysis alongside meaningful community engagement. We must fully understand current walking and cycling activity and exactly where there are opportunities for more, to target future infrastructure investment
- Working closely with the Active Travel England team to ensure new policy and guidance reflects the unique challenges and opportunities within the East
- Supporting local authorities in the region to develop a toolkit to help planners design roads and streets with a greater emphasis on accommodating sustainable modes
