ACTIVE TRAVEL GROUP

montage of people cycling, walking and map-reading

More than 20% of our total emissions come from transport, so, by reducing our reliance on petrol and diesel powered vehicles we can reduce overall CO2e in BoA. For most people local trips in and around the town are possible without the need for a car and it's surprising how easy it is to get about BoA on foot, by bike and on the bus. Our Active Travel Map has been designed with just this in mind.

We are also exploring the possibilities for encouraging electric powered vehicles.  Some retail outlets are about to be approached with the aim of installing electric vehicle charging points in the near future.

If you feel you would like to help the group in any way please email climatechampions@gmail.com (preferred) or telephone/text 07507 782523.
