Local elections are coming soon. Watch this space for how to get involved, making your area a better place to live, walk and cycle.
We helped put walking and cycling on the agenda in the Holyrood elections – but May 2017 sees all elections for all local authorities in Scotland. Your councillors have as much of an impact on your streets as you MSPs so we’ll be once more working to make sure active travel doesn’t end up in the margins. Watch this space for more detail as we tailor our messages and develop our campaign.
Our three asks for the local elections are:
- Investment: Provide sustained, long term investment in both cycling and walking, reaching 10% of the transport budget
- Infrastructure: Build and maintain dedicated cycling infrastructure suitable for people of all ages and abilities
- Local action: To solve the main local barriers to active travel, as identified by residents and businesses
