How do you currently move around Helensburgh and what improvements would you like to see to make it easier and safer for you to walk, wheel and cycle?
That’s the question Argyll and Bute Council is asking residents, organisations and businesses as part of a new project. Helensburgh in Motion aims to gather views on how to make it easier and safer for everyone to walk, wheel and cycle to destinations in the town, including schools and community facilities.
A public consultation is open and available at www.bit.ly/helensburgh-in-motion. The closing date for comments is 29 February.
Following feedback from residents and interest groups, the council aims to produce options and concept designs to expand existing active travel routes.
In addition to the online survey, workshops are taking place in local schools to hear from young people and a drop-in event on 24 February at the Market in Colquhoun Square. The event is an opportunity to meet the design team and have your say about what you would make a difference to you.
Councillor Andrew Kain, Policy Lead for Roads and Infrastructure:
“As we work together to reduce emissions and create a climate friendly Argyll and Bute, we want to create as many opportunities as possible to use the car less, where possible.
Part of our ambition to expand active travel networks across the area, is to hear from you about what improvements you would like to see in and around Helensburgh. Your feedback will help shape future plans as we look to make it easier to walk, wheel and cycle to destinations around the town.”
