Too often our towns and cities have been designed around cars whilst our green spaces have been neglected or squeezed out altogether.
We want to change that. We want neighbourhoods that put people walking first and allow everyone easy access to quality green spaces within a short walk of their front door.
Neighbourhoods that are green and inviting to walk promote good physical and mental health and wellbeing. They help combat poor air quality and encourage people to get outside and be active.
That's why we’re campaigning to improve neighbourhoods across Great Britain for people walking. Please join us by voting for Britain’s Best Walking Neighbourhood 2019 and asking your councillor to sign up to our Charter for a Walking Neighbourhoods.
Our award celebrates urban areas across England, Scotland and Wales where positive steps have been taken to improve everyday access to green spaces and create more walking friendly neighbourhoods - vote for your favourite now!
