Brent residents are being asked for their views on how to get people walking more.

Brent Council are asking as part of its Walking Strategy, a campaign to encourage people to walk more in the borough.

A short questionnaire asks how often you walk, what the barriers are to walking in the borough and what improvements the council could make to encourage people to walk more are.

Cllr Eleanor Southwood, Brent Council’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “We are committed to making Brent a borough that is accessible for all and walking as a mode of transport is a key part of that aim.

“Getting more people walking in Brent would mean fewer vehicles on Brent’s busy roads, it would mean better air quality for everyone in the borough and as a form of exercise, it would mean that residents are healthier too.

“I would ask that as many residents as possible complete the questionnaire and let us know what we can do here to help make Brent a better borough.”
