An exciting project is getting under way that aims to encourage and enable more people to use climate-safe, people-friendly modes of travel, and reduce traffic and pollution, across the Bingley Rural area. The Green Travel Project is the first of its kind, bringing together local councils across the ward (Cullingworth, Denholme, Harden and Wilsden) and drawing on expert help from Sustrans and Mapping for Change, to explore local views and opportunities to make improvements.

The Project will kick off with a series of ‘roadshows’ in September. Local volunteers and officers from Sustrans will engage residents and visitors in conversation about sustainable transport, aiming to understand what might help more people to use walking, cycling and public transport, and leave the car for at least some journeys. This will be followed up with online mapping workshops to help map out in more detail local barriers and issues around green travel, and develop ideas and aims for a greener, less polluted way forward.

We’re keen to hear your views: complete our survey or drop by one of our roadshows:

Sat 4 Sept, 2-4pm, Cullingworth Village Hall

Mon 20 Sept, 12-4pm, Wilsden (outside the New Inn)
