Have your say on active travel in Redditch

Active travel is high on the agenda as we build back greener here in Redditch following the impact of COVID-19.

During the lockdown we saw massive increases in the number of people walking & cycling. This appetite for more active travel must be maintained & built on. We can’t go back to the way things were.

It’s often said how well built Redditch is for more bike lanes, so, working with local colleagues, we’re determined to be ambitious & improve cycling in our town, as well as all forms of active travel.

I’d like to get your views on active travel as your feedback will be important in the work we’re doing to boost active travel in our town. I hope you can find a few minutes to complete the survey by clicking on the link below.
