Active travel strategy

The North Somerset Active Travel Strategy sets out plans to develop more opportunities over the next ten years to ‘make walking and cycling the natural choice for a cleaner, healthier and more active North Somerset’.

The strategy aims to achieve a number of benefits locally including:

  • safe and often active travel to improve public health 
  • reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality 
  • support the local economy  
  • help grow more ‘liveable neighbourhoods’ with our communities

The strategy’s key target is to increase walking and cycling trips by 300% by 2030. More information can be found in our strategy document.
