Welcome to the Transition Belper Travel & Transport Group

We are extremely excited about enabling people in Belper to travel more sustainably, and the positive benefits this will bring to our health, our money and the environment.

e-mail: or phone: John on 07780 644707

The group aims to:

  • transform Belper and the DE56 area into a more pleasant place to live and get around,
  • encourage people to use existing public transport networks,
  • understand the travel problems of the area and seek ideas to resolve them. 
  • help local authorities to understand how they can create  integrated, user-friendly bus, rail, cycle and walking networks, Highlight the cost, convenience, and lifestyle benefits from doing this.
  • demonstrate that the latest technology developments will make zero carbon transport possible in the near future. Show how it would work within the DE56 area.

The group has produced a vision of the future, showing how Belper could be transformed by 2030. It uses foreseeable developments in technology to make journeys more pleasant, remove the need for fossil fuels, cut travel costs, and make the roads safer for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

These cartoon strips show the daily lives of typical residents in 2030.
