Healthy Streets

What is it?
Healthy Streets' is a community led project intended to build on what a community already does best. Its aim is to add to the benefits that the introduction of 20mph speed limits in residential areas and outside schools has brought, promoting more walking and cycling in local Lancashire communities and making it more enjoyable to get out and about in them.
 

Our Purpose

To encourage communities to utilise their outdoor environment and feel inspired and safe to walk, play, cycle and socialise with neighbours.

Healthy Streets has helped communities across Lancashire to put their ideas into actions. From providing cycle training and cycle rides to tidying up a local walking route to making a piece of land more attractive, we may be able to help!

Anyone can get involved: local organisations, schools, faith groups, scouts and girl guides, individuals and clubs! Local people really are the leaders of Healthy Streets and they have the deciding vote on what aims and activities will be progressed.
