Active Travel Hinckley
The Active Travel Hinckley Project aims to promote and increase sustainable active travel choices made in Hinckley.
Hinckley is experiencing significant growth from the local enterprise zone and housing developments, which has led to a significant increase in car usage and periods of congestion. As a result, active travel has been highlighted as a key priority for Hinckley as part of a three year locality plan, led by the Borough Council.
The Active Travel Hinckley team will be offering a package of active travel opportunities, using the existing and proposed infrastructure in Hinckley. The team will be working with businesses, employees and the wider community to increase physical activity levels and drive improvements for the economy, environment and health of the community. The primary focus will be walking, running and cycling.
