I’m doing a lot on the Active Travel Fund at the moment, which is exciting. In selected parts of Braintree, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Colchester and Wickford we want to reimagine how the roads, footpaths and cycleways can be used, and make all trips, to school, work or anywhere else, safer, greener and healthier.
Also, as we get to the end of the academic year, I’m supporting schools to develop their travel plans and get national accreditation. These are all long term projects, aiming reduce the traffic issues every school experiences and get more pupils walking, scooting or cycling to school. There are all sorts of opportunities, whether at schools in big towns or in our many small villages. I’m always happy to advise schools, completely free of charge.
