Active Travel Existing Routes Map

The Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 places new duties on Local Authorities in Wales to produce and publish Active Travel Maps. The first stage of the Act required Local Authorities to produce an ‘Existing Routes Map’ and submit this to the Welsh Government for approval by January 2016. The Existing Routes Map relates to specific areas in Wales, which are determined by population as specified in the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013.

The Existing Active Travel Routes Maps do not show all walking cycling routes in the County Borough. The map only includes those routes that meet the definition of an Active Travel Route as set down in the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013. In summary

Following a public consultation in 2015 on Wrexham’s Draft Existing Route Maps (ERM), amendments were made as a result of the responses received and the revised ERM was submitted to Welsh Ministers in January 2016 for approval. There are 14 maps covering each of the designated settlements in Wrexham which make up Wrexham’s Existing Route Map.

The Existing Route Maps will be of use for people who wish to plan their walking and cycling journeys and it will be used as a measure over time to demonstrate the development of the Active Travel network across the County Borough.

If you require paper copies of the Existing Routes Maps, or copies in an alternative format, please contact us by sending an email to traffic@wrexham.gov.uk

Draft Integrated Network Map Consultation

Wrexham County Borough Council along with all other Welsh Local Authorities is required under the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 to produce an Integrated Network Map setting out a 15 year programme of improvements. The public consultation to inform the development of the Integrated Network Map will be undertaken during 2017. The feedback received from the consultation will be used to help inform the development of the Integrated Network Maps.
