A note on the General Election

We will not be running a Walk Cycle Vote campaign for this snap general election – we rely largely on voluntary efforts, and coming on top of an intense local election it was not possible to muster the resources again.

Besides, with transport largely being a devolved matter, there’s little that our Westminster MPs can do to make a difference to walking and cycling in Scotland, although Westminster policies will have a significant impact on conditions for walking and cycling south of the border.

However, even though we won’t be collating candidate this election or canvassing their policies, that doesn’t mean that it’s not worth raising active travel yourself with your own candidates.

To help with this, our briefing note and our social media tools are all here, for you to use and share over the next few weeks.
