Smarter Choices Smarter Places Annual Report 2021-22

We are delighted to share the latest Smarter Choices, Smarter Places Annual Report 2021/22 which highlights the impact active and sustainable travel projects are having in communities across Scotland with the support of our funding programme.

Kevin Lafferty, CEO of Paths for All, said: 

I'm delighted to present this Annual Report which shows it’s been another successful year for Smarter Choices, Smarter Places: Paths for All’s Scotland-wide grant programme which exists to encourage people to reduce car use in favour of more sustainable modes of travel such as walking, wheeling, cycling and using public transport. We have supported several active travel and behaviour change projects in communities all across Scotland. The programme is helping Scotland to become an active nation by increasing the number of people choosing to travel actively as part of their everyday lives.

Graham McQueen, SCSP Manager at Paths for All, said: 

It's really encouraging to see some brilliant results across all the Smarter Choices, Smarter Places funding streams. It has been a difficult few years for everyone working through Covid but, as this report shows, the Smarter Choices, Smarter Places programme has developed invaluable partnerships and working relationships that reach diverse communities all across the country and SCSP has continued to deliver results throughout. We are in a fantastic position and will continue working closely with partners and projects and really step up the level and speed with which change will be delivered over the next few years.

Funded by Transport Scotland, Paths for All's Smarter, Choices, Smarter Places (SCSP) programme encourages people to change their behaviours to drive less and to walk, wheel or cycle as part of their everyday short journeys or to use public transport for longer journeys.
