Walkable Communities in Scotland

image description

Do you want to help create safer, more attractive streets and spaces in your local community?

Increasing the numbers of people walking for short journeys has proven health, economic, and social benefits.

Considering the needs and issues faced by pedestrians of all ages and abilities, our Community Street Audits are a straightforward way of prioritising the issues and identifying effective, pragmatic and often low-cost improvements that can make a huge difference to the quality of the walking environment and enable and encourage people to walk.
 
The approach emphasises cooperation and partnership approaches to delivering better streets and public places. As such they are an excellent tool for community groups, local authorities, community planning partners, health partners, housing associations, and local trades associations with an interest in getting more people walking.

Join us at one of our free training sessions this autumn!

We will be delivering four free Community Street Audit Training session this Autumn, open to representatives from community groups, local authorities and other community planning partners, housing associations and local voluntary groups.

The sessions are hands-on and include a short sample audit, and delegates will leave with a draft ‘action plan’ and other useful materials designed to support the delivery of audits and improvement activities in their communities.
