Following public consultation the County Council Executive Member for Economy Transport and Environment approved a new Walking Strategy in January 2016.

The strategy aims to provide a clear statement on the County Council's overall aspirations for walking; establish a framework to support the development of local walking strategies; provide a means to prioritise the County Council’s funding to the best value for money investments for walking; and support the County Council in realising additional funding opportunities for walking measures.

The strategy is intended to link with the County Council's broader planning policies and infrastructure delivery plans, and those of its' partners, in order to encourage people to walk more often.  The vision is that by 2025, walking will be the travel mode of choice for short trips (around 1.5 miles) and the most popular and accessible means of recreationWalking will be a convenient, safe, healthy and popular means of transportation and recreation within Hampshire.
