Walking and cycling in Conwy - have your say

The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 requires all local authorities in Wales to continuously improve their active travel routes and plan how routes will join up to form networks so that people can more easily get around by bicycle or as a pedestrian for their everyday journeys to work, school and other local destinations. 

Following a period of public engagement the legislation requires councils to undertake consultation to give the public the opportunity to check their opinions have been taken on board. This is the stage Conwy County Borough Council has reached. We are now asking :-

  • Have we identified the correct routes for improvement (future routes)? 
  • Are we correct in our assessment of routes that already meet the agreed standards (existing routes)?
  • Have we identified all the appropriate new routes?

The legislation is primarily (but not exclusively) based on settlements with a population of more than 2000. In Conwy this means we are consulting about improvements to the walking and cycling routes within these settlement.

Audit Wales - Are local authorities building community resilience?

Audit Wales logo

Is your local authority enabling you and your community to do more for yourselves?

We want to find out how local authorities are building social resilience and self-reliance in their citizens and communities. Is your local authority supporting you to live independently?

By providing information to support people to do more for themselves, local authorities can create a more resilient future where communities decide on the big issues they face and do more for themselves.

Our survey aims to find out what makes our communities the places they are, and how resilient they are. We want to hear the things that communities have done in the last two years that people are proud of, and that others can learn from.

We also want to find out what else local authorities need to do to support the public to be able to do more for themselves. 

We’d love to hear from you, fill in our survey [opens in new window].
