HTW-03-21 - Emergency Active Travel Schemes Results of Consultation

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Waste

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes





            I approve that:


            Tranche 1

(i)               The schemes at Winsley to Bradford on Avon, Hilperton Road Trowbridge, and Monkton Hill Chippenham be made permanent.

(ii)              The schemes at Bristol Road Chippenham and Brown St / Exeter St Salisbury be removed.


            Tranche 2

(i)               The schemes at Hilperton to Melksham via Semington and Easton Lane at Chippenham be subject to further consultation

(ii)              The schemes at A420 Bristol Road and Lowden Hill, Chippenham and Downton Road Salisbury, should not be progressed at this time but be retained as future scheme candidates.


            This decision was published on 12 February 2021 and will come into             force on 20 February 2021           





Reasons for the decision:

Tranche 1 - After consideration of the consultation response it is considered that three of the temporary schemes are sufficiently well supported that they should be made permanent.  The two less well supported schemes should be removed.


Tranche 2 – After consideration of the consultation response, the Assessment Framework and the anticipated scheme costs and available budget it is considered that the two highest scoring schemes should move forward to further consultation.

Alternative options considered:



(i)               Make the existing Tranche 1 Active Travel schemes permanent (in part or in full).


(ii)              Remove the existing Tranche 1 Active Travel schemes (in part or in full).


(iii)            Carry out further consultation on potential new schemes.
