Our policy work

  • Devolved elections

We've been doing lots of work around the devolved elections. You can read the three cycling tests that we think the new London mayor must answer, and the responses from Sadiq Khan, Zac Goldsmith, Caroline Pidgeon and Siân Berry.

We have produced a guide to the manifestos produced by candidates for the Welsh Assembly elections. We've also had success getting candidates to endorse a call for long-term funding for cycling and active travel in Northern Ireland.

In Scotland we published ‘On the move – a joint manifesto for active travel’ in 2015, alongside UK Cycle, Living Streets, Transform Scotland, Cycling Scotland the Ramblers and Paths for All. We took the manifesto to all the political conferences in autumn 2015 and liaised with manifesto researchers and politicians too. In addition, we are part of the grass-roots ‘We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote’ campaign.

We're collaborating with seven cities in the UK to report on progress towards making cycling an attractive and everyday means of travel. Bike Life is the biggest survey ever conducted on attitudes to cycling in the UK.

Our Policy Scan is a regular summary of key policy thinking, reports, announcements, consultations and important dates.

We seek to make contributions to assist in the development of all official policy and guidance relevant to walking, cycling and public transport. The policy submissions page contains current and past submissions.

The Network is a monthly e-newsletter that seeks to inform professional audiences about the breadth and depth of our work, and places it in the context of the wider political and policy agenda.

We're campaigning for safer streets. We believe that every child has the right to walk, cycle or scoot to school. Join the campaign.
