A fantastic opportunity!Post in Community Energy by Tina Hartley
What will the project do?
Funded through Paths For All – Smarter Choices Smarter Places - and delivered by PAS (Planning Aid Scotland), this project will take place in up to 10 locations across Scotland. The project will help to develop an increased evidence base to support sustainable transport interventions and build engagement capacity at a local level. A focus will be placed on those seldom heard in the planning system, who may most benefit from the increase in sustainable and active travel solutions.
How will we do this?
PAS will help communities address sustainable travel aspirations to create unique transport focused action plans.
What happens next?
Tina, Yvonne and Ewan are currently working with PAS and making plans to talk to our community about what you want in terms of transport options - we can look at walking, cycling and public transport but we can also look any other ideas you have to get our community from A to B. You have already told us you would like: -
Cycle/walking routes connecting parish areas via forestry ie. Inchbae-Garve, Garve-Strathpeffer, etc.
Improve walk between Contin and Garve.
Cycle network between Contin and Garve.
Cycle tracks within and through our community (away from our ‘fast’ roads).
Accessible local transport.
Improve foot path access though out the Garve and district region.
Create a path between Gorstan and Garve for pedestrians.
Cycle path from Contin to Silver Bridge and signposted to take them off the main road.
Affordable transport into town, car share/pick up share scheme
What else is important?
It is important that community representatives - Lochluichart Community Trust and Garve and District Community Council get involved with the process and that other key community stakeholders are involved too such as land owners, community groups etc.
Make sure you are part of the discussion, it's your community, have your say - we will be in touch very soon!
