What is the Active Transportation Network Plan?

The Township of Esquimalt adopted its Official Community Plan (OCP) in 2018. The OCP includes specific objectives to help improve conditions for people walking and cycling. Building on these objectives, the Township is the process of developing its first Active Transportation Network Plan (ATNP). The purpose of the plan is to:

  • identify gaps in the pedestrian and cycling network;
  • improve the quality and experience for people walking, biking and rolling;
  • provide a roadmap for high priority improvements over the short-term (5 years), medium-term (10 years), and long-term (10+years); and
  • increase the share of trips completed by active transportation and to more broadly reach the climate targets set out in the Official Community Plan.

What is Active Transportation?

Active transportation, as defined in the BC Active Transportation Design Guide, includes any form of human-powered transportation, including walking, cycling, or rolling using a skateboard, in-line skates, wheelchair or other wheel-based forms of human-powered transportation.
