Widen the Choice

Widen the Choice was a dynamic animator in sustainable countryside access from 2002 to 2009. A partnership between The National Trust, the RSPB and Natural England (initially The Countryside Agency), Widen the Choice covered the East of England region, working to make it easier for people to reach the countryside by means other than the car. The following are legacies of the partnership's work, carried out by Transplan's Chris Wood. The links all open in a new window.
