WDC Active Travel Strategy

Dear Stakeholder

West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) is now in the process of developing an Active Travel Strategy (ATS) for the local authority area. The requirement for an ATS, setting out a strategic approach to plan infrastructure and behavioural interventions, was introduced in the Cycling Action Plan for Scotland in 2013.

WDC wishes to develop an ATS which includes a package of measures to improve the active travel facilities within West Dunbartonshire. With a focus on modal shift and improving wellbeing, the measures proposed in the ATS will consider a variety of intervention types including both physical infrastructure improvements and behaviour change schemes. To help achieve this, WDC and their partner consultant AtkinsRéalis would like to reach as many people as possible and capture the views of those living, working, and visiting West Dunbartonshire.

A public survey has been developed and four drop-in events scheduled across West Dunbartonshire, full details below:

Engagement events

Monday 11th March: Clydebank Town Hall     12:00 – 17:00

Attached in the email is an engagement poster that has been created to help promote both the public survey and in-person events. We welcome people to complete the survey and to share across your networks to ensure we reach as many people as possible. The engagement events will be a great opportunity to meet members of the project team working on the ATS, as well as an opportunity to share your suggestions and views on active travel across West Dunbartonshire.  

If you would like more information on the ATS programme, please feel free to email the AtkinsRéalis delivery team on: christopher.cordwell@atkinsrealis.com
