Streets for People – Levenshulme and Burnage

Streets for people are a local group of residents campaigning for safer and active travel and Levenshulme and Burnage.

“Active travel” means making journeys by physically active means, whether that be by cycle, walking or with a mobility aid.

We hold direct actions, public events, and push for local and Manchester-wide politicians to help enable the positive changes our neighbourhoods need.
