Active and sustainable transport is not only good for the environment, but also good for physical and mental health. The Department for Infrastructure’s Planning for the Future of Transport sets out a travel hierarchy which prioritises sustainable transport by:

  • firstly providing for walking and wheeling,
  • then providing for cycling,
  • then providing for public transport,
  • then providing for taxis and shared transport and goods vehicles, and
  • finally, providing for private cars and motorcycles. 

Some useful links to active and sustainable travel are set out below.
