active travel survey
Riverside Community Council is set to launch a new community Riverside Active Travel Survey.
The survey will ask 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.
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.
Community Council Chair, Joan Murphy,said,”We are delighted to have received funding from Paths for All’s 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.
The survey is due to run until the end of January 2021, though is likely to be extended due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.
The survey is anonymous and will take less than ten minutes to fill in. Use the options below and tell us what you think!
Results of the survey will be collated and share here at the end of April 2021 and an Active Travel Plan will be designed around the results.
This report will help secure funding to assist in carrying out project ideas that are suggested in the Active Travel Action Plan for the Riverside community.
