Active Travel Scheme Review in Crewe

Three of the borough’s Active Travel routes are being reviewed and the council is inviting comments on whether they should continue.

The three schemes, which apply to Crewe, Macclesfield and Congleton town centres, allow for easier travel for cyclists and pedestrians, using designated routes. They came into operation as part of the council’s Covid-19 response, for which the council received central government funding.

Residents now have a final opportunity to comment as to whether these measures should remain a permanent feature to encourage active travel, including cycling and walking.

The council has a policy to promote active travel, including cycling, owing to the health benefits it can bring to individuals and communities, as a whole, through reduced traffic, cleaner air and a healthy environment.

Residents – and businesses – can post their views via: Have Your Say Today – Cheshire East Active Travel Response – Commonplace

Alternatively, people can email ActiveTravel@cheshireeast.gov.uk

Comments should be received by the council no later than Thursday 30 June 2022.
