Our Local Groups help to make walking a priority build a walking nation one street, community, town and city at a time. Sadly, a legacy of designing our cities around cars has left many streets unattractive places to walk, cycle or use public transport.
The time has come for us to create more community minded, healthier streets across the UK and to demand for practical and effective actions that make that happen.
Our local groups work with the local council, other neighbourhood groups and local residents to make streets fitter for walking. Whether that’s a new dropped kerb, getting new schemes modified or securing 20 mph limits across the board, our groups are winning changes big and small that make a real difference to people in their area.
You have the local knowledge. You probably know the issues that need resolving in your area and how to approach them. You know which roads and crossings make walking tricky and unsafe and where changes need to happen.
