How does this impact on Community Wellbeing? Clear benefits from Doctor Green (known benefits of being outdoors in nature) for people who can't access areas off tarmac. Beaches, fields, woodland are all easily accessible with no destructive infrastructure required. Project working in Scotland for 3 years with Scottish Natural heritage, PAMIS, BBC, Glasgow, Leonard Cheshire, etc etc. Pony powered vehicles add a friendly environment, as seen here, https://youtu.be/yNlDRk2JYfA and take people across previously inaccessible terrain here https://twitter.com/BBCScotland/status/1165714461631688706?s=09 and here https://youtu.be/hRdniJFXDFM Fully insured, totally safe, we use the only PUWER 1998 compatible pony powered vehicles in the world. Why should the Committee focus on this as part of their future work? Because it is easy to scale up. The project exists as a one man band. I am working with Free Wheel North to expand their work in Glasgow Green, making more terrain accessible to more people. The bicycle pony power combination means that we can take anyone, in any wheelchair or none, anywhere. Where the pony scores, use ponies, where bikes are better, use bikes, if people prefer one or the other, use their preference. Choice, access and Inclusion in one package.
This is eco friendly Inclusive access to the great outdoors. With COP 26 in November, the perfect time to make Glasgow's parks and open spaces totally accessible to all people, regardless of ability, disability.
