Riverside Community Active Travel Survey Now Available as a Paper Copy!
The Riverside Active Travel Survey is now well-underway, and we are delighted to let you know that so far, there has been 80 surveys completed, and another 18 replies to a similar survey for older people.
Thank you to everyone who has completed one!
There have been many very positive comments, and suggestions of improvements that could be made to help more people to get around, and in and out of Riverside by leaving the car behind.
We are now making the survey available as a paper copy. As from now, you can pick one up from a plastic wallet on each of the community council noticeboards, one outside the shops on the corner of Millar Place and Forth Crescent, and one at the Post Office on Abbey Place. The survey is anonymous and will take less than ten minutes to fill in.
When you have completed the survey, please hand it over to either the Post Office staff, or Mr & Mrs Mohammed at Riverside News and they will keep it safe until it is collected by the community council.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the survey has been extended until 31 March 2021. We will be publishing the findings of the survey after the end of March on the website.
We would love to hear from you! Thank you!
About the Riverside Community Active Travel Survey
The survey is part of the community council’s ‘Travel-light Riverside’ Project, which aims to identify any issues with Active Travel and transport in Riverside, and suggest ways to tackle these. Finding solutions to these issues will improve the quality of life for those who live, work in, and visit Riverside by reducing congestion and pollution, improving health, and enhancing our public spaces.
The survey asks the community and neighbouring communities about how they travel to, from, and around Riverside, and if there are any barriers that stop them walking, cycling and using public transport.
Community Council Chair, Joan Murphy, said, ”We are delighted to have received funding from Paths 4 All Smarter Choices, Smarter Places for this project, and to be working with Forth Environment Link who are helping us to launch and run the survey.
We would like to hear from anyone living or working in or travelling through Riverside, especially members of those groups who are often over-looked, for example, people with disabilities, older people, and students. We want to make Riverside a place where everyone feels safe and confident to use ‘people-powered’ travel, so we need as much information as possible to inform us about the steps to take”.
Information from the survey and through other community council consultations, will be used to create a Riverside Active Travel Action Plan, and will identify future projects to be take forward with Stirling Council and other partners.
