Community Active Travel Officers: who we are and what we have done

We have worked throughout Bristol to support projects which encouraged people to travel sustainably, reducing single passenger car use and promoting the use of local amenities. We worked with local people in the West of England to develop solutions to solve local problems. Our projects opened up travel options that created vibrant streets, thriving local economies and healthy residents. The more innovative the project the better!

Projects delivered in 2015/16

Focus on cycling activity in three areas

In 2015/16 we focused on promoting cycling activity in Bristol’s three enterprise areas – Hengrove, Easton and Lawrence Hill and Lawrence Weston. Activities, events and projects aimed to support more people to cycle as a means to promote health, access work and skills and reduce car use.

Working with Registered Social Landlords

We developed a pilot programme in 2015/16 working with Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) and their tenants to increase sustainable transport opportunities for residents, primarily by improving or creating cycle parking at their properties, but also promoting Wheels to Work and other support services, and linking residents to active travel opportunities. Match funding was available for our project partners. Read more

Active Neighbourhood Transport Grants

We have supported more than 70 community projects across the city over the past two years. In 2015/16 we continued to manage approximately ten of these projects with continuation funding.

Toolkits

We have provided comprehensive bike tool kits, including track pumps, to nearly 40 community centre, which are for use by their visitors and members of the public. Their locations are listed online at Better By Bike If there is sufficient interest, we can arrange for bike maintenance training courses for any staff members who are responsible for these kits
