We’re asking for your help as we put together our plans to improve cycling and walking routes in towns and villages in Wrexham. We want to make them better places to live, work and visit by the routes to make active travel the normal way to get around for local journeys.
The plans are for some specific areas in Wrexham; these areas have been shaded on an interactive map https://wrexham.commonplace.is, to make it easy for you to let us know your views.
You can also tell us about things outside of these places, but our main focus is to improve areas where there is the greatest need for change and highest potential for more people to choose active travel.
The locations were chosen because they’re where the facilities are that people travel short distances to regularly – schools, leisure centres, employment sites, local shopping districts and transport interchanges.
Covid-19 has seen a big change in people choosing to walk or cycle rather than use their cars and we’d like to make sure we’re prepared to support this increase as much as possible.
We also want to know what barriers you face in using the current walking and cycling routes. Are they too short? Are there too few of them? Do you feel safe using them? Are there enough of them?
Please take a few minutes to take part.
The consultation is ongoing until 25 June 2021 and we’ll use the views to develop our future infrastructure which we’ll formally consult on later in the year.
