Everyone should be able to choose to walk their everyday journeys. If you agree, we want you with us.
That means we need to stand up for pavements, call for better crossings, champion the voices of those who often go unheard when we are looking to reimagine our public space.
Sadly, many people feel that walking is not an option for them. But at Living Streets we believe everyone should be able to choose an active, healthy and stress-free life without a car.
Through simple choices like prioritising walking we can achieve a cleaner future for people, places and our planet.

Living Streets Scotland’s pavement parking campaign
In 2019 the Scottish Government banned pavement parking across the country, after a long campaign from Living Streets Scotland. Scotland is the first place in the UK outside London to tackle the issue pavement parking, helping to make pavements safe and accessible for all users.
Volunteer campaign success
After work from London Living Streets Local Group a programme of wait time reviews was included in TfL’s Walking Action Plan to cover all the signalised crossings in London.
20mph speed limit in Wales
Living Streets Cymru was a key part of the Welsh Government task force group that made recommendations for a default 20mph speed limit for residential roads in Wales. As a result, eight locations in Wales are trailing default 20mph roads this summer ahead of government plans for a national roll out in 2023.
None of this would have been possible without the campaigning of Living Streets members since the organisation was founded in 1929. Join us.
