A Nation with Ambition - The Government’s programme for Scotland 2017-18

The Scottish Government has launched its Programme for Government 2017-18 which sets out the actions it will take in the forthcoming year.

A Nation With Ambition outlines the Scottish Government’s commitments to tackling the challenge of poor public health with new initiatives to reduce obesity, boost active travel, improve mental health and tackle air pollution.

It plans to build an Active Nation, boosting investment in walking and cycling and putting active travel at the heart of our transport planning.

Actions will include:
• making towns and cities friendlier and safer spaces for pedestrians and cyclists by increasing investment that supports active travel from £40 million to £80 million per year from 2018-19
• appointing an Active Nation Commissioner to ensure delivery of world-class active travel infrastructure across Scotland
• stepping up promotion of the use of electric bicycles to ensure as many people as possible can benefit from active travel
• delivering projects which help older people benefit from our network of walking and cycling routes.
