Online consultation on active travel in Peterhead

A second online consultation will be held next week by Peterhead North Sustaining Choices in a bid to hear people’s views on how to make walking, cycling and wheeling easier and safer in and around the town.

Wednesday, 21st April 2021, 7:00 am
Views are being sought on how to make it easier for walkers and cyclists to get around.

As well as looking at active travel, the Paths for All funded project will discuss ways to improve conditions for those who use public transport.   

The consultation will take place on Tuesday, April 27, 7-8.30pm, via zoom.

Jon Barron, of NESTRANS, Mark Chapman, of Buchan Dirlers Cycling Club, and Leona Findlay, of Buchan Development Partnership, are the facilitators for the Peterhead North project along with Eleanor Morris, Aberdeenshire Council’s area project officer.

It is hoped that the online discussion with Peterhead communities will increase awareness of what the sustainable transport and active travel needs are in and around the town. The Peterhead North team will then feedback the results to Planning Aid Scotland, who are overseeing all the Sustaining Choices projects in Scotland, to finalise the sustainable transport action plan.

Jon said: “The purpose of the engagement sessions is to talk to the wider Peterhead community to capture their thoughts on walking, cycling, wheeling and using public transport in and around the town.  We also want to hear people’s ideas on how Peterhead could be improved to make these activities a viable choice for everyone, as you travel in and around Peterhead. 

“As facilitators of this project, we are responsible for reaching out to the Peterhead community, encouraging groups to engage with this project, and collating all responses to enable PAS to create an action plan for Peterhead North that could be used to shape future decisions and support community projects.”
