Urmston Active Neighbourhood The Urmston Active Neighbourhood launch was first held in January 2020, local people were invited to attend and have their say on developing proposals for the project, to improve Urmston as a place to live, work and visit. This was part Trafford Council initiative awarded Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Funding (MCF) to create Trafford’s first active neighbourhood in Flixton, Davyhulme and Urmston. Approximately 600 people attended this event, which kick-started the consultation and also included the launch of the engagement website, which was used to gather feedback from the community on the changes that they wanted in their local wards. Approximately 3400 comments were received that were analysed by the project team to create proposals for the scheme.

Active Neighbourhoods also seek to make our roads a safer place for all users. Active Neighbourhoods be achieved through: New crossings, walking and cycling facilities Introduction of measures around schools to improve road safety Measures to prevent ‘rat running’ in residential streets More walking and cycling routes connecting communities Prioritising the movement of people over vehicles Environmentally friendly community spaces Back to topProposals for Flixton West and Davyhulme Park We’ve listened to your feedback from our initial consultation and are now ready to present phase 1 proposals focused for two Urmston neighbourhoods based on solutions to concerns fed back by the community. As such, we believe that these updated plans are an important opportunity to continue the involvement of the communities of Flixton West Davyhulme Park with active neighbourhood proposals that aim to: Address high levels of local congestion and pollution and to cut down on dangerous rat running and illegal parking. Create effective havens with cleaner, greener, and healthier active travel opportunities by restricting motor vehicles at various locations, creating school streets, maintaining cycle lanes and footpaths and ensuring safer and easier connections for people to walk, shop and cycle locally. Tie-in and complement both hyper local initiatives such as school streets as well as with the Greater Manchester's Bee Network in developing a fully integrated transport system for the region, that includes walking, wheeling and cycling. Assess interest for a minimum 6-month trial period with temporary traffic filters/barriers during which, the experiences of residents and non-residents the and the gathering of data, i.e. traffic numbers and proportion, congestion, speeds and pollution levels will continue and inform any decision on how best to proceed with the proposals. The proposals include several improvements: 'One Way' proposals where that the movement cyclists will be except A number of proposed point closures and diagonal closures / filters restricting the passage of vehicular traffic but allowing the free movement of pedestrians and cyclists Signal controlled cycling facilities and pedestrian crossings alterations Narrower junctions, extra footway space and shorter pedestrian crossings alterations making it easier / safer to get around on for pedestrians (or wheelchair/mobility aids/pushchairs) More attractive streets through planting/greenery/seating Changes to improve parking To support the introduction School Streets Example of street point closure / modal filter Example of existing Street Point Closure / Modal Filter in Park Road South, Urmston. We want to hear your views on these proposals as your feedback will inform the development of these schemes.
