Sustainable Travel and Transport

What is it?

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, the vast majority of visitors arrived in the Lake District by private motor vehicle; this has increased further since ‘lockdown’ restrictions have eased. The challenge for the Lake District is to be a place where everyone, regardless of wealth or ability, is able to access the National Park sustainably via different modes of transport. Low carbon travel needs to be the obvious and most attractive choice for essential and leisure travel. The nation’s mental and physical health-benefits from active travel in an inspirational landscape need to be secured.

What we are trying to achieve is set out in the Partnership Plan here:
