Active Travel Action Plan Refresh

Closed 14 Feb 2020

Opened 10 Jan 2020


Aberdeen City Council currently has an Active Travel Action Plan (2017-2021), and many actions from this have been taken forward.  However, the current Action Plan is heavily dependent on the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) being completed for some of the actions to be carried out.

Given that the AWPR is now complete and is beginning to influence traffic patterns and flows, coupled with the fact that the current Action Plan is halfway through its cycle, this is an opportune moment to refresh the Action Plan to reflect the aspirations contained in the City Centre Master Plan, Roads Heirarchy and other strategies to ensure we are reflecting the needs of everyone when considering Active Travel measures and improvements.

The City Centre Masterplan and the draft Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan both predominantly cover the City Centre area and we will also be carrying out a series of corridor studies on the main radial routes (A92, A944, A956, A947, A96, A93), so we are particularly interested in this consultation to hear about other areas of the City, in order to ensure that all areas are given equal status when considering how to move forward with Active Travel in the City. 

Why your views matter

Aberdeen City Council is committed to working in partnership with all stakeholders, be they internal or external.  We are particularly keen to hear the views of the public to ensure that we are reflecting the wishes of the population in our strategies and policies going forward and that the public has a sense of ownership of the refreshed Action Plan.

The refreshed Action Plan should be as wide ranging a document as possible, reflecting the range of views of all stakeholders in order to be as inclusive a document as it possibly can be.

What happens next

All responses will be analysed and collated to determine if any common themes emerge and the results will be used to help shape the emrging refresh document.

Please be assured that all answers will remain annoymous and will only be used for the purposes of this consultation.
