Milkstone & Deeplish Active Neighbourhood Consultation

Closed 15 Aug 2022

Opened 15 Jul 2022


What is an Active Neighbourhood?

An Active Neighbourhood aims to help residents to make short trips on foot, by cycle or by public transport, instead of jumping in their car. Active Neighbourhoods also seek to make our roads a safer place for all users.

This can be achieved through:

  • new crossings
  • new walking and cycling facilities
  • traffic calming
  • introduction of measures around schools to improve road safety
  • measures to prevent ‘rat running’ in residential streets
  • pocket parks

The proposed Milkstone & Deeplish Active Neighbourhoods is part of a Greater Manchester-wide programme to improve the areas where people live, and all 10 local authorities are taking part. Chris Boardman, Greater Manchester’s Transport Commissioner, explains more about what an Active Neighbourhood is in the video link below and also the option to trial experiential measures before a final decision for an area is made.





For further information on Active Neighbourhoods and to see examples in other areas of Greater Manchester and to see how people in those areas have found these types of schemes please visit the dedicated Transport for Greater Manchester page below.
