Active Travel comes to local school

Published: 11/02/2016

As part of Flintshire County Councils Active Travel Consultation, officers visited Ysgol Mynydd Isa with the Road Safety Education Trailer to talk with pupils about their journey to school. Officers wanted to know what barriers children faced which discouraged them from walking to school. They also discussed the wider benefits of walking to school. Pupils provided useful feedback for the consultation process which has been relayed to Welsh Government as part of Flintshires consultation report. Councillor Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader and Lead Cabinet Member for Environment, said: The Active Travel Act is a world first and provides us with an opportunity to make Wales an Active Travel nation. Flintshire County Council has submitted its first Existing Route Maps and is now awaiting Welsh Government approval. For the next consultation phase on the Integrated Network Maps, Flintshire County Council will be devising a programme of visits to other schools within the County. Any schools wishing to participate can contact the Active Travel Team on Pictured with staff and pupils from Mynydd Isa Primary School are Claire Parry, Road Safety Officer, Cllr Bernie Attridge Cabinet Lead Member for Environment, Jessica Pritchard, Regional Travel Plan Co-ordinator
