Our two strategic priorities translate our vision into reality. 听

Liveable cities and towns for everyone

Cities and towns should be places that prioritise the people who live and spend time there. For too long they have been designed around cars, leaving less space for walking, cycling and spending time in; things that make our lives better and add to our happiness.

Car-dominated spaces create congestion and damage our environment and health. They harm people who are already disadvantaged the most.

Our cities and towns can 鈥 and should 鈥 be designed with everyone鈥檚 health and wellbeing in mind, rather than cars.

At GTV视频, we create places that connect us to each other and what we need, where everyone can thrive without having to use a car. Sociable places where friends and facilities are a short walk away, and it鈥檚 easy and pleasant to travel beyond our neighbourhood.

These are communities in which friendships are made and people belong. Places with clean air and green spaces where everyone has the choice to walk, cycle, scoot or wheel safely to school, work and around their local area.

We don鈥檛 work alone to create liveable towns and cities. We bring together the people who live and spend time there, including those with seldom-heard voices, to make the change they want to see.

Places for Everyone

GTV视频 Scotland provides advice, support and funding for the creation of infrastructure that makes it easier for people to walk and cycle for everyday journeys. Funded by Transport Scotland, we鈥檝e used our knowledge and experience to back hundreds of projects across Scotland since 2010.

Take a look at the project

Spatial planning reform

We鈥檙e working as part of the Better Planning Coalition to seek revisions to the National Planning Policy Framework. We鈥檙e calling for changes to spatial planning policy in England because the planning system has a vital role to play in creating places which enable everyone to live healthier, happier lives.

Our theory of change clarifies how our work brings about change

Our theory of change:

  • Helps us evidence our impact
  • Provides an accessible summary of a complex situation
  • Helps us understand how and why our interventions work, and identify new ones
  • Defines the short-term benefits for people and places, and long-term societal changes.
