N76: Energy in Motion - Sustainable Transport Consultation

Community Energy Scotland has partnered with six rural communities associated with the A76 trunk road to develop low carbon transport (LCT) solutions for the benefit of local residents. The results of this survey will inform the kind of LCT that will be explored via the N76: Energy in Motion project.

Low carbon transport refers to any transport options with low associated CO2 emissions. This might involve behavioural changes such as making use of public transport or active travel (i.e. walking, wheeling, or cycling), technological innovations such as electric vehicles or e-bikes, or community-led initiatives such as car and lift-sharing or multi-use community vehicles.

This survey is being conducted with the support of the Nith Valley Leaf Trust, Keir, Penpont, & Tynron Development Trust, and Moniaive Initiative. We are particularly interested in responses from residents currently living in the civil parishes of Closeburn, Glencairn, Keir, Penpont and Tynron.
