Active Travel Consultation 2020/21


The Active Travel Network Map (ATNM) Consultation ran throughout 2021 and has now closed.


We want to provide the Vale of Glamorgan with a network that allows for walking and cycling to become the most natural and normal way of getting about for local journeys. And, by doing so, to promote the health and well-being of everyone and to make our towns and villages more liveable places.

All Local Authorities in Wales had to resubmit their ATNMs to Welsh Government by 31 December 2021.


We have reviewed the existing Active Travel network in Barry, Cowbridge, Dinas Powys, Llantwit Major, Penarth, Rhoose, St Athan and Sully and identified new routes and existing routes that need improvement.  We held three stages of public consultation providing many opportunities for the public to feed into the ATNMs:


  1. Consultation December 2020 – January 2021: Feedback on barriers to walking and cycling.

  2. Consultation March - April 2021: Validation of the draft network.

  3. Consultation 2 August 2021 - 24 October 2021: Final statutory consultation on the proposed Active Travel Network Map.

Welsh Government will review the maps and they will be available on a Welsh Government portal called DataMapWales in 2022.
