The government published its first Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) in 2017, with the objectives to; increase cycling and walking and increase safety.

The strategy attracted criticism from cycling and walking organisations for its lack of ambition and funding.

To help inform the next CWIS2, the Parliamentary Group will host three hearings during July, at which invited experts and stakeholders will provide oral evidence. In addition, people will be able to provide written evidence to the inquiry.

The report will be launched in early September.

Ruth Cadbury MP, co-chair of the APPGCW said: ‘We’re delighted to be launching this inquiry today. There has never been a better time for us to address how active travel can be improved and promoted,

building on the growing enthusiasm for cycling and walking.

‘Our inquiry will aim to constructively inform the Government’s second Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, by bringing together a wide and diverse range of stakeholders and experts.’
