Conservative-led Shropshire Council has appointed a new School Travel co-ordinator responsible for leading its forthcoming school travel plan programme.
The Officer will be working with Shropshire’s schools to make it easier and safer for pupils to get to and from school safely and actively. She is looking to bring in a series of measures to support schools and the school community to make more sustainable choices.
Conservative Councillor Ian Nellins said: "
“Rhiannon’s work will form a really important part of our wider active travel work, helping to encourage walking, cycling, car sharing and public transport use as a way of getting to and from school, and helping to reduce the number of car journeys. It will give parents and children the confidence to walk or cycle to school, and help the environment by reducing emissions.
I look forward to working with her in the coming months.”
