Green Party release manifesto – Our response

The Green Party Manifesto features many of the policies Sustrans has called for in our Manifesto for UK Government.

It promises £2.5 billion a year for walking and cycling infrastructure which is around 10% of transport spend.

It realises the need for fewer not just cleaner vehicles to tackle the climate crisis, physical inactivity and congestion through low traffic neighbourhoods.

It recognises the need to ensure new developments do not force residents into car use but provide safe pedestrian access to services much like Sustrans call for 20-minute neighbourhoods where everything you need is within a 20 minute walk. The manifesto also promises pledges to enhance access to community-owned green space much like our call for resources to put Greenways in place locally.
