Closing date: 2nd July 2021 (CLOSED)

Essex County Council has been working with district, borough and city councils and local community and accessibility groups to create a partnership known as Active Travel Essex. The plan is to re-allocate road space to make more room for everybody to safely and efficiency walk and cycle in five Essex towns - Braintree, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Colchester and Wickford. As more people take up walking and cycling and avoid using their cars for short trips, it will mean fewer vehicles on the road and ease congestion for those who have no alternative but to drive, making their journeys more reliable and efficient.

With your support, they can help transform these town centres and neighbourhoods into thriving, healthier areas, with fewer cars but more people cycling and walking, allowing us all to breathe cleaner air and enjoy a better way of life.

Essex County Council are ready to share their plans with residents, businesses and other key stakeholders.
