Methods of involving the community

Public participation is a valuable part in the formulation, implementation and use of active travel schemes. Good communication with our communities is essential for this to happen.

All of the methods of engagement detailed in this section are credible providing they are used in the right context. The information below sets out how we will seek to involve people in the active travel schemes development process, the methods of engagement, highlighting some of the benefits of each method and the effect, if any, on our resources. Not all of these methods will be used for each stage of the preparation of active travel schemes.

To ensure that we make the most efficient use of the resources available we will make use of existing networks and groups wherever possible. This can include the community and voluntary sector and representative community groups.
