Accept the need to constrain motor vehicles in urban areas

Accept the need to constrain motor vehicles in urban areas

How does this impact on Community Wellbeing? People prefer BEING in public spaces without fast moving heavy objects. Such public spaces allow children to play, the elderly to sit on benches and chat and the imbetween to walk and meet others of all ages. Why should the Committee focus on this as part of their future work? Most people live in urban or semi-urban environments. For communities (beyond the virtual) communities to develop requires interactions some of which need to be random to cultivate new or developing relationships. Providing space that is geographically local to the house and which is suitable for interaction is probably the most important way to develop community and hence community well-being. There must be evidence from other countries (Denmark, Copenhagen) that shows this empirically.


Excellent idea which ticks all government policy boxes. Supports active travel and community engagement. Reduces pollution and improves air quality.
