Heaton Park Active Neighbourhood project

Active Neighbourhoods focus on prioritising people and place over cars using planters and benches to stop rat running on residential streets. The changes typically create quieter streets for residents to chat and for children to play, as well as making trips to schools and to the shops safer

The scheme forms part of the Bee Network, a 10-year plan for Greater Manchester to deliver the UK’s largest cycling and walking network, eventually spanning 1,800 miles. The focus is on enabling people to leave the car at home for everyday trips to school or to the shops. This will contribute to the one million additional daily sustainable journeys Greater Manchester wants to achieve by 2040, while also having wider benefits to health, congestion and clean air.
