The term 'active travel' refers to journeys made by modes of transport that are fully or partially people-powered, for any journey.  It includes walking, people using wheelchairs, cycling (including e-bikes) to name a few.  

Active travel brings many benefits, including reduced congestion on our local roads, reduced air pollution and better physical, mental and social health.

The survey will assist the Council in identifying potential improvements to the existing active travel network.  Potential funding avenues can then be explored.  Whilst funding for new links may be difficult to achieve, respondents to the survey should express these too.

Improved active travel routes will help the local community make active travel the natural choice for short journeys in the area.

All questions relate to the area shown on the map which includes grid reference numbers.  Should you wish to comment on a particular area within the map, please quote the relevant grid reference number.

Why your views matter

Your responses will inform the future of active travel links and improvements within the vicinity of the Tweedbank Expansion site.  Potential funding avenues and any opportunities for community-led initiatives will be explored.
