Bath and North East Somerset Council has been consulting on three active travel schemes, two of which impact travel to and from the University’s main campus at Claverton Down. These road improvement schemes form part of a “district-wide strategy to move away from the idea that streets are just for cars, and to promote active travel in Bath and North East Somerset.”

The University is absolutely committed to supporting schemes and local infrastructure which will enable active travel for our students, staff, visitors and local community, and help us to achieve our carbon targets.

We therefore support the principle of the proposed active travel schemes but do not have a view on the route selected. We recognise that there are a range of opinions on the different possible routes to achieve this aim, and so wanted to share our response to the consultation with our community.
