All Scottish local authorities are going to the polls on 4th May 2017 – we want to make sure walking and cycling are high on the political agenda
We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote is campaigning for all candidates in the 2017 local elections to help turn Scotland into a healthier, wealthier, happier country and help transform our lives and the lives of our children.
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
We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote is a collaborative campaign supported by a wide range of organisations across Scotland, from community and active travel groups to health charities. Find out more.
