Sustainable Travel

Our Local Transport Strategy outlines our objectives to promote sustainable forms of travel. This is done through activities and initiatives including developing new walking and cycling infrastructure, promoting public transport, car sharing, efficient driving techniques and the use of electric vehicles. 

We also promote the use of Travel Plans for businesses and schools. These are sometimes required as a planning condition for new developments. If you would like to learn more about travel plans, the Essential Guide to Travel Planning (pdf) is a good source of information.

Read about cycling routes in Moray, and check out our new and up to date Active Travel Map for Elgin (PDF) and surrounding areas (PDF), helping you get about locally with all the walking and cycling you need to make safe healthier travel choices.

Sustainable Travel Events Calendar
The Sustainable Travel events calendar is your one stop shop for active and sustainable travel information. Whether you are just looking to find out more, or want to get involved with some of the national events to create positive change, there is something for everyone. In Moray we have the opportunity to help reduce emissions by supporting and promoting active and sustainable travel. By shifting to active and sustainable travel it not only helps protect our planet – it brings so many benefits to organisations and employees too.

Speyside Low Carbon Hub
The ‘Speyside Low Carbon hub’ project was awarded funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge Fund, and Transport Scotland.

The hub and path project is sited in the heart of Scotland's Speyside area. The project aims to make a step change in the use of low carbon transport modes in a number of different ways. Further information can be found at the Speyside low Carbon Hub webpage

School Streets
A School Street is a road outside a school with a temporary restriction on motorised traffic at school drop-off and pick-up times. The restriction applies to school traffic and through traffic. The result is a safer, healthier and pleasant environment for everyone.

School Street schemes offer a proactive solution for school communities to tackle air pollution, poor health and road danger reduction. A School Street scheme will encourage a healthier lifestyle and active travel to school for families and lead to a better environment for everyone.Further information can be found at the School Streets webpage

Draft Active Travel Strategy
The Active Travel Strategy sets out overarching aims, objectives and actions as to how Moray Council will seek to deliver high quality walking and cycling networks. It seeks to increase publicity and awareness of these routes, in order to encourage more trips by Walking and Cycling. This is our second Active Travel Strategy with the previous one covering the period from 2016 to 2021. Active Travel Strategy 2016 - 2021
