Vote for a Walking Britain

Vote for a walking Britain 

With the general election fast approaching, we’re calling on all candidates to support our manifesto for a walking Britain.

The UK’s exit from the EU gives us a unique opportunity to develop a new agricultural policy that delivers improved access for walkers. That is why we are calling on the next Government to ensure agricultural subsidies for farmers and landowners are used to enhance access to the places we love to walk.

But the focus on Brexit shouldn’t mean that other issues are overlooked. We’re calling on the next Government to help create a walking Britain which:

  • puts walking at the centre of efforts to improve public health;
  • makes towns and cities safe and attractive for walking; and
  • supports the English coast path and the future of national trails.
