Working towards safer streets in Inverness

The Highland Council is working with a national charity to promote safer streets in the city of Inverness.

Living Streets – the UK charity for everyday walking – has secured 12 months funding from the Scottish Government to work in 4 communities across Scotland to support the introduction of 20mph speed limit areas.

Living Street Project Coordinator Barbara Allan said: “The project aims to work with local authorities, community organisations, residents and other interest groups to support the role everyone can play in introducing lower speed limits.

“The project will offer hands on support to local authorities and community organisations in developing, designing and introducing lower speed limit areas.

We would like people to get in touch with us via our survey to tell us what they think of the current 20mph area. Are you aware of it and how does it impact on you? The survey can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/2L37DS8

The survey will have a two fold purpose – to get your views on the 20 mph area in Inverness and how safe these streets are to cycle and walk in, and produce valuable information to help us to look at how we promote the 20 mph area and the improvements we could make.

Provost of Inverness, Helen Carmichael said: “This is an important project which will help us improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists in Inverness. We would like our city to be as a safe and pleasant a place as possible to move around, shop and work.”
