Paths for All, Living Streets Scotland and Ramblers Scotland have come together to launch a new call for the Scottish Government to ‘Walk Back Better’, ahead of the Holyrood elections in May

Walk Back Better is calling for increased investment and support in the following areas:

  1. Deliver better access to walking for everyone
    Creation of a £50m walking infrastructure fund and producing better design standards for walking and wheeling
  2. Make walking easy and enjoyable
    Increase investment for walking behaviour change programmes, improve accessibility to paths through mapping and promotion and ensure our planning system prioritises walking
  3. Ensure walking is safe in every community
    Protect pedestrians with 20mph speed limits, and reducing traffic and pollution outside our schools
