This document has been written by a coalition of the country‚Äôs leading environment, transport and health organisations that includes: The Bicycle Association of Great Britain; British Cycling; Campaign for Better Transport; Campaign to Protect Rural England; Chartered 
Institution of Highways & Transportation; CTC, the National Cycling Charity; Institute of Highways Engineers; Living Streets; Sustrans; UK Health Forum; and the Richmond Group of Charities (Age UK, Asthma UK, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, British Heart Foundation, British Lung Foundation, Diabetes UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, The Neurological Alliance, Stroke Association and Rethink Mental Illness.  Our vision is to transform the UK and create communities where children and their families are able to choose to walk and cycle to school, to work and recreation. Supporting local authorities to deliver better places to walk and cycle will allow people and communities to thrive, increase educational attainment, social cohesion and economic output and reduce social isolation and preventable ill health. To do this we need renewed political vision and commitments in the form of three actions for the new Government to take in the first 100 days: Leadership, investment and strategy.
