Of the 200 organisations that responded to the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy Safety Review Call for Evidence approximately 40 were from Local Authorities, or local authority affiliated bodies. This included responses from cities, shire counties, district and borough councils and Parish councils. Four responses were from “rural” or “predominantly rural” authorities, and six from authorities that are “urban but with significant rural” areas.
The Call for Evidence was widely communicated through local transport press, national press, and via relevant national organisations, including those representing local authorities and rural communities. In addition, Transport Minister Jesse Norman wrote to MPs and to Ministers of the Scottish and Welsh governments. Local authorities of all types were invited to respond.
