Toolkit for the Development of Community Trail Networks

5th November 2015

Are you an individual or community that knows of some local disused paths or greenspace that could be re-opened? Community Trails or Community Trail Networks are mostly traffic free paths through local greenspace. Designed for use by local communities and visitors, the trails give people an opportunity to access the outdoors safely and with confidence. Crucially, they are located on the doorstep of local communities so can be accessed without going far from home. No cars or buses should be required! This toolkit will help you to plan a Community Trail or Network by advising how to put the right trails in the right places in the right ways.
