Dorset Council wants to hear about improving active travel

Dorset Council has launched a survey to find out the views of residents on improving walking, cycling and wheeling in the county.  Planet Wimborne encourages everybody to respond to the survey to let the Council know how important it is to support active travel.

You can find the survey at and it is open until 18 January 2024.

The survey asks Dorset residents for their thoughts on which routes are important to them and what needs changing to help them get more active in their daily lives.
The Council want to make it easier for more people to gain the benefit of active travel, whether walking, cycling, or wheeling (using a wheelchair, mobility scooter or similar aid) for their health, their independence, their pockets and the environment.

This short survey aims to help the Council to develop an Active Travel Infrastructure Plan and to find out what routes are important to people and what prevents residents from walking, cycling or wheeling in their local area.

They are initially seeking views on a network of routes in eastern and southern Dorset, which are the most densely populated parts of the council area.  Future plans will look at links in more parts of Dorset too, so the Council is keen to hear about other locations people would like to see improved.
