Regional Active Travel Network

Developing our Active Travel Network

Nestrans, Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council are leading the development of a Regional Active Travel Network (RATN) study which, when complete, will identify aspirations for a high-quality, cohesive network for walking, wheeling and cycling across the North East of Scotland.

A draft regional network has been developed, formed of important routes in built-up areas, and of regional connectors which link the region’s communities, providing solutions that are appropriate to the different geographies and different types of people across the region.  The network will align closely with national standards and plans to maximise the opportunity for downstream funding, but we recognise that it also needs to be developed from knowledge of the local issues and opportunities within the region.

A consultation exercise launched on Wednesday 17th April, and we are now asking for feedback on the draft network from key stakeholders and members of the public.  To view the proposals and provide your views, please visit Regional Active Travel Network StoryMap.

The consultation will be available until Sunday 2nd June.
