Midlothian Council is asking local people to fill in a short survey about how to encourage more people to walk and cycle.

The survey findings will be used to update the council’s Active Travel Strategy, due to be published in 2022/23.

The ‘Help us Get More People Travelling Actively’ consultation can be found HERE.

The council has set up a virtual consultation room including maps giving more details of progress made on projects previously decided on in the current Active Travel Strategy.

This will help respondents fill in the survey to tell the council if they agree with the projects and if they think other improvements are needed not included in the strategy.

Part of the council’s vision is to see walking and cycling as the main choice for short, everyday journeys.

Depending on government coronavirus restrictions and guidance, the council will be putting printed copies of the survey in some community venues across Midlothian in the coming weeks. It will let residents know where they can find them.

If anyone can’t fill in the survey online, they can do so over the phone by calling 07557 549307 during the following hours:

• Mondays 10am-12.30pm and

• Thursdays 2pm-4pm

The closing date is Friday 25 February.
