Section 7 – Securing continuous improvement in active travel routes
20.Local authorities will be required in every year to secure new active travel routes and related facilities together with improvements to the existing routes and facilities for active travel. This means that local authorities will be expected to make year on year improvements to their routes and facilities by expanding the amount that is available and by upgrading existing provision. The Welsh Ministers will issue guidance to support local authorities in carrying out this duty. Local authorities will also be required to make a report to the Welsh Ministers setting out the costs that they have incurred in each financial year in performing their duty under this section.
