Cities around the world are beginning to realise that by getting more people walking and reducing the number of cars, they will create a healthier, more equal society and attract business and investment into the city.

We need cities designed around people not vehicles. In May 2017, with local elections and a number of city-regions electing a mayor for the first time, now's the time to put the case.
