State of our streets
Why is the state of our streets so crucial?
People care about the state of their streets: they are the one local service that everyone uses. Where streets are well maintained and attractive, we tend to walk more, feel safer, support more local businesses and take more pride in our neighbourhoods.
These are difficult economic times - but this makes it all the more important to give everyone a fair deal, meet basic expectations, communicate effectively and make budgets go further. Living Streets is calling on the government to make sure councils have the powers they need to keep streets up to scratch, while supporting councils and communities in working together to make streets safer and more attractive.
