Aberdeenshire Council Walking and Cycling Action Plan

Aberdeenshire Council is committed to encouraging more people in the region to walk and cycle more often. The development of the Council?s first Walking and Cycling Action Plan sets out how we are aiming to achieve this.


Walking and cycling can have many positive economic, environmental and social impacts for the region. For example, walking and cycling are great forms of exercise that can contribute to improved health and well-being. By encouraging a change in travel behaviour in favour of walking and cycling, levels of congestion can be reduced, journey times improved, and in turn environmental and economic benefits delivered.
