I'm a former chair of Brighton and Hove Living Streets Group, the national charity which works with its supporters to create safe, attractive and enjoyable streets where people want to walk. The research supporting pedestrian-friendly towns and cities is overwhelming - for increased health and well-being, a safer and more human environment, lower pollution, and stronger performance from the local economy. 

Formerly known as the Pedestrian's Association, Living Streets has been the national voice for pedestrians for over 80 years, with campaigns which have led to the introduction of the driving test, pedestrian crossings and 30mph speed limits.

Living Streets has a network of local and affiliated groups, local authority members and corporate supporters.

Here are some activities undertaken by me and by Living Streets Brighton and Hove Group:
