ACTIVE TRAVEL

Our Greenways and Extending Our Greenways – Feb 2019 to  April 2021.

Following community consultations the Northern Corridor Community Volunteers needed help to kick start community led active travel projects. They needed a body with company status to enter into contracts on their behalf and manage their ambitious active travel projects at a strategic level. To enable this work on behaviour change Cloudberry Communities applied for funding from the National Lottery to provide the staff time and expertise to ensure the project had a sustainable and lasting impact.

Some community successes are highlighted below

  • Led rides to Cumbernauld and Glasgow to show people off road routes.
  • Led walks demonstrating how walking to access local services can be quicker, more healthy and much cheaper than travelling by car
  • Establishment and Launch of a bike library – offering free three week loans to local residents 
  • Establishment and Launch of an ebike loan scheme for key workers and long distance commuters
  • Dr Bike sessions
  • Community Engagement around Public Transport Infrastructure 
  • Community Engagement around the local path network, improved signage and delivery of another loop on the community heritage trail – adding interest for local residents in their daily walks with the potential to attract visitors once restrictions allow.
  • Continued lead working on the Synergy Active Travel Partnership
