Labour Party release manifesto – Our response

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

It pledges to increase investment in walking and cycling and introduce policies to help people become less reliant on cars for transport.

It pledges to bring together transport and land-use planning to create towns and cities in which walking and cycling are the best choice. It also pledges to create new powers enabling the government powers to buy land for housing development more cheaply and introduce a “use it or lose” it tax on housing developments which stall.

It pledges to introduce healthy street design and ensure that the areas around schools are safer, enabling more physically active journeys to school. It also pledges to ensure that more people live closer to nature.
