Moving Forwards: Healthy Travel in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan

Declining levels of physical activity, increasing levels of obesity and diabetes, widespread air pollution, social isolation, and worsening health inequalities are all pressing public health issues in our area. Climate change is a severe threat which is already being felt in the UK and across the world.

Changing patterns in the way we travel and how we design our environments for travel have played a significant role in these issues. Bold action is required locally if we are to reverse these trends in population and global health, and create a healthier more sustainable future for our residents.
