What commissioning priorities are recommended?
Facilitate and create increased opportunities for people of all ages to use ‘active travel’ in their daily routine for accessing education, employment or services.
Promote greater understanding of the health benefits of active travel and use events and programmes to introduce people to walking and cycling.
Increase the capacity of voluntary sector groups to deliver active travel programmes to sustain higher numbers of beneficiaries.
Improve detailed understanding of local access issues by improving the walking and cycling network information.
Consider health impact assessments for transport projects which have the potential to influence physical activity or such things as air quality and accessibility.
Commission programmes of education, training and publicity targeted towards reductions in road traffic accidents involving vulnerable road users.
