Living Streets appoints new chief executive
Living Streets, the charity that campaigns to improve public spaces for pedestrians, has appointed Tony Armstrong as chief executive.
Armstrong said that his objectives in his new role would include encouraging central government and local councils to adopt Living Streets’ vision of increasing the number of adults and children walking to work and school, as well as improving street design.
“We are going to strengthen the support we give our members, allowing the voices of communities to be heard by those in power,” he said.
Armstrong succeeds Tom Franklin, who left the charity in September 2007 to become chief executive of the Ramblers’ Association.
