Local measures to promote walking and cycling: final guidance from NICE



– NICE has published final guidance on local measures to promote walking and cycling.

– The evidence suggests that ‘effective support’ from local councils plays a key role in increasing the rates of walking and cycling

– The recommendations are similar to the draft guidance published in April 2012

– The context for implementing them has moved on significantly, with local authorities poised to take control of public health budgets from April

– Increasing walking and cycling rates should be part of all council activities such as developing and implementing local plans and joint health and wellbeing strategies
