Letter to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Employment and Sustainable Growth on Active Travel

28th November 2011

LINK is concerned at the proposed decrease in funding levels for walking and cycling within the draft Budget. This reduction, to less than 1% of the transport budget, contradicts the Government’s own manifesto commitment to increase spending on active travel (p35). In terms of preventative spend, we believe that encouraging more people to walk and cycle for short journeys will result in enormous benefits across Scotland.
