Government Cycling & Walking Investment Strategy

April 7, 2016

The government’s ambition is to create a walking and cycling nation. To further this goal they have created a draft cycling and walking strategy for consultation and are seeking:

  • suggestions and evidence of innovative projects and programmes which could be developed to further our goals of:   increasing cycling activity /   reversing the decline in walking activity /   reducing the rate of cyclists killed or seriously injured
  • views on how to increase cycling and walking in typically under-represented groups
  • views on the approach and actions set out in the strategy to meet our key objectives
  • views on the potential roles of government and non-government bodies in delivering the strategy, plus the how they work together
  • views on the assistance local authorities and local enterprise partnerships would find beneficial to support development of infrastructure plans
  • views on our proposed activities for meeting our objectives of better:  safety / mobility / streets

The timescale and approach to developing this strategy were originally stated in Setting the first cycling and walking investment strategy released in December 2015. Deadline for responses 23rd May
