Walking and Cycling in Neath Port Talbot - Have Your Say

Active Travel Consultation

We need your help as we shape Active Travel plans to improve towns and villages in Neath Port Talbot; and make them better places to live, work and visit. By upgrading and creating new walking and cycling routes we aim to make active travel the normal way to get around for local journeys, improving air quality, promoting healthier lifestyles, and increasing the attractiveness of places to live and work

How was your feedback taken into consideration from consultation 1?

Between 27th November 2020- 15th January 2021 we sought your views on how cycling and walking provision in Neath Port Talbot can be improved. We have listened to that feedback and combined with other relevant information to produce a draft Active Travel Network Map (ATNM). Your feedback has resulted in:

  • All comments categorised and ‘strategic comments’ which relate to proposed new routes, analysed and added to the draft map where relevant, these comments and recommendations can be viewed in appendix 2.  
  • Crynant received an overwhelming response and as a result routes have been added in this area. These routes form part of 127km of extra routes that have been added on from the previous maps approved in 2017
  • Active Travel funding has been received this financial year to remove cycle barriers and install cycle storage and seating.  Responses are informing the process of identifying suitable locations for these. 

Why is it important to get involved?

The engagement process will help us build up a picture of where the priority areas for improvements are and also where residents need new routes in order to access a destination by Active Travel, this will in turn help to produce the Neath Port Talbot’s Active Travel Network Map.

The Council is able to apply for funding from the Welsh Government each year to implement the proposals on the Active Travel Network map. If routes are not on the map they are not eligible for funding, so it is important that we understand what matters to residents of Neath Port Talbot.    

Please select ‘Have your say’ and let us know your thoughts on how cycling and walking provision in the area can be improved.
