Nottinghamshire County Council has secured funding to provide extra support to residents and community groups in both Sutton-in-Ashfield and West Bridgford during Autumn 2023 / Spring 2024.

Many people changed their travel behaviour due to the impact of Covid-19, but switching to more sustainable ways of travelling, can have a massive positive impact.

Changing your travel behaviour, by reducing the number of single occupancy car journeys you make:

  • could help save money
  • reduces congestion
  • is kinder for the environment

Shorter journeys can often be made on foot or by bicycle.

There’s lots of FREE information, advice, and services to help you:

Additional Support for Sutton-in-Ashfield and West Bridgford:

Our travel advisors will be visiting up to 2,000 households in Sutton-in-Ashfield to provide travel advice in September / October 2023 and March 2024. We will also be working with community organisations in Sutton-in-Ashfield and West Bridgford.

Adult cycle training and Dr Bike cycle maintenance sessions are available by visiting the Ridewise website.
