Our Cambridge Living Streets Group

The Cambridge Living Streets group provides a focus and campaigning platform for pedestrians across the city.

Our 2021 survey highlighted the widespread importance of walking as an economic activity, with 29% walking to work and 73% walking to local shops. The Greater Cambridge Partnership consultation confirmed the importance of walking, with 65% of respondents citing it as their ‘most commonly used transport mode’.

We aim to give pedestrians of all ages a voice in policy making, engaging with local government bodies to deliver a walking infrastructure that is safer, greener and more pleasant.

Cambridge Living Streets is a local group of the National Living Streets organisation.

About us

Our Cambridge Living Streets Group aims to respond to all transport-related proposals and local developments that have implications for pedestrians – walking and wheeling – in terms of access, safety and amenity. Recent work has included meetings and responses to consultations on Greater Cambridge Partnership transport schemes and on the Beehive Centre redevelopment. We regularly raise concerns about existing infrastructure that does not safeguard pedestrian movement, especially for people who are less mobile or disabled, such as poorly designed crossings, pavement quality and obstructions.

Members meet online, 6.30-7.30pm, on the last Tuesday in alternate months and our AGM is held in November.
