Living Streets wants Cardiff to be healthier, cleaner and less congested - by making walking safer, more pleasant and the easiest option for short journeys we can make change happen.
We expect the new Cardiff council leader, Huw Thomas, to deliver on the Labour Party manifesto to make Cardiff a "great active travel city."
Living Streets now wants to see leadership and an action plan within the first 100 days to turn the commitments into reality.
After a generation of decline in the number of children walking to primary school (from 70% to 47%), Living Streets is now urging the new Labour Council Leader to support making their pledge to “invest in safer routes to our schools and ensure every school has an active travel plan for cycling and walking.”
Other commitments by the Labour Party in its manifesto for the city include; making Cardiff a "great active travel city", encouraging more cycling and walking, rolling out more 20mph zones across the city and to work towards making Cardiff a United Nations ‘Child Friendly City’. Living Streets now wants to see action to turn these commitments into reality.
