Get Wales Walking, the movement has begun

A charity is launching a call for political parties to make Wales a nation that walks more and feels the benefits of walking.

Living Streets Cymru and its supporters want the Welsh Government to prioritise and fund walking and on Wednesday, 4 November will launch a new manifesto at the Senedd where a representative from each political party will be presented with the proposals to Get Wales Walking.

Living Streets wants to see adequate investment and commitment made to the Welsh Active Travel Act and the ambitions set out in the Active Travel Action Plan to increase the number of children walking to school.

Rachel Maycock, Living Streets Director (Wales) said: “We want the Welsh Government to listen to the people of Wales and address the concerns we know they have by ending unauthorised pavement parking and making 20 mph standard in all towns and cities.
