Active Travel consultation

Views sought on walking and cycling routes in Powys 

The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 aims to make Wales a walking and cycling nation. To achieve this the legislation is placing a duty on local councils to identify, improve and promote designated "active travel routes" within any town that has a population of over 2000 residents.

By law each authority has to produce a draft map of their county which shows all the designated active travel routes and submit this to the Minister by 22 January 2016.
