Welcome to Essex

Active Travel Fund consultation plan

In November 2020, the Department for Transport (DfT) announced that they will be awarding us £7.3M to improve walking and cycling in Basildon (Wickford), Braintree, Brentwood, Chelmsford, and Colchester.

These are bold and ambitious schemes which will make a real difference to sustainable transport in Essex.

A key part of ensuring success is that we consult with the community and make sure these schemes meet local needs. For more information please read the Consultation Plan.
