PAS are excited to launch their third programme of Sustaining Choices. This programme works with up to seven community groups across Scotland to produce Active and Sustainable Travel Action Plans.

As part of the Sustaining Choices programme, PAS work closely with communities over a year, delivering training, supporting community engagement, data analysis and report writing so that they can develop a vision of better walking, wheeling, cycling, and public transport for their areas. In particular, they are looking to support communities who would especially benefit from having better active and sustainable transport.

‘This has been a fantastic opportunity to engage with the residents of Wester Hailes and hear how they feel that moving around within their community can be made much safer and more pleasant.’ – Lesley Porteous, Project Leader (2021 programme)

Applications are open until the 21 April. You can find the application form and all the detail about the project on the PAS website.

In the past they’ve worked with local authorities, development and community trusts, third sector organisations, and community groups. If you just want to find out more about the project please email the project lead Erin Fulton,

Sustaining Choices is supported by the Smarter Choices, Smarter Places fund.
