Why set up a Wandsworth Living Streets group?

The Mayor of London has announced that 2011 will be London’s Year of Walking. We feel it’s timely to establish a local Living Streets group, to work towards safe, attractive and enjoyable streets in our borough…. which means wider pavements, better crossings, comfortable places to sit down, streets that everyone can use, a convivial public realm, quieter and more peaceful roads, cleaner air….
If you would like to be involved in creating a voice for local pedestrians, why not come to our meeting and help shape what we do?
