Active travel briefings for Local Authorities

The national ‘Active Travel and Health' group has produced three briefings on walking and cycling for local authorities.

The briefings are in the form of short Powerpoint presentations and bring together all the latest evidence, policy and ideas on active travel. They are designed to help local authorities make the case for action to increase walking and cycling. They have been produced in consultation with local authorities and with the input of a wide group of people interested in active travel.
