Active Travel Forum


The Council facilitates the Wirral Active Travel Forum which meets quarterly.  The forum’s vision is to improve the health of Wirral residents by promoting active travel modes as the natural choice for shorter journeys, or as part of a longer journey in Wirral – regardless of age, gender, fitness level or income.


The forum brings together residents, public and private organisations and individuals to support active travel as a simple, low cost and effective way for people to access life opportunities whilst increasing levels of physical activity in their day to day life.  Membership is open to all.


The forums’ role is to ensure ideas are put forward regularly so that relevant schemes are developed that respond to and meet local needs, taking into account the wider City Region priorities.
