Active Travel

The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 places duties upon local authorities in Wales to map, plan for, improve and promote opportunities for active travel.

Active Travel means walking and cycling for everyday journeys. This includes journeys to school, work, to the shops and to access health and leisure services. Active Travel does not include walking and cycling for recreational purposes.

The Act also requires new road schemes (including road improvement schemes) to consider the needs of pedestrians and cyclists at design stage.

What has been done so far?

The Act requires local authorities in Wales to produce and publish active travel maps.

All local authorities in Wales were required to produce and publish Existing Route Maps. Following a period of public consultation during 2016, Isle of Anglesey County Council has produced a report for the Welsh Government detailing the consultation conclusions, along with copies of the Existing Route Maps for the seven settlements agreed with the Welsh Government (Holyhead, Valley, Amlwch, Benllech, Menai Bridge, Llanfairpwll and Llangefni).

Anglesey County Council’s Existing route Maps have been approved by the Welsh Government and can be viewed below.

What are the next steps?

The next step for Isle of Anglesey County Council is to produce Integrated Network Maps for the seven settlements.

These will set out the local authority’s plans for improving active travel routes and facilities over the next 15 years, and will include a period of public consultation during the Summer of 2018 with the maps being submitted to the Welsh Government by November 2018.
