Travelling Light

Travelling Light is a nationally significant sustainable travel pilot, unlocking the conditions for transformative change in two key areas: Decarbonising rural travel, and Improving the experience of a significant landscape for all.

The aim is to combat climate change by encouraging everyday walking and cycling, increasing the use of high quality public transport, and reducing the use of vehicles powered by fossil fuels. These steps will also improve the quality of life of residents and visitors by enhancing road safety and reducing the noise and disruption resulting from traffic.
