An online survey has been launched to see how residents get about Bury St Edmunds and whether more can be done to encourage them to walk and cycle.

It has been launched under the auspices of Our Place, the town’s county and community discussion group.

Green county councillor Mark Ereira said that at its last meeting there was discussion on whether there was any emerging planning on sustainable transport.

While accepting people from outlying villages often had no alternative to driving, he added: “We’re talking about the 45,000 or so people who live in the town. We want to see what other methods of getting around they can embrace.

“We’re seeing what gaps there are to walking and cycling safely around the town.

“One example is for people wanting to walk in across Flemyng Road, who said there weren’t enough drop kerbs – that’s being dealt with. It’s these minor things we want to pick up.”

The 12-question survey is at www.surveymonkey.com and will be open until November 3 so that it can be discussed at the next Our Place meeting.
