London Councils: "Pedestrians spend more money in town centres than motorists"

Link to web site
"The range of shops and services in a town centre is more important to visitors than whether they have to pay to park there, according to new research.

"London Councils commissioned consultancy The Means to review previous research done about the impact of parking and parking charges on town centres.

"Their report, The Relevance of Parking in the Success of Urban Town Centres, looks at whether there is a link between free or cheap parking and the amount of commercial activity at town centres across London."

"Delivering the benefits
of cycling in Outer London"
"This is an exciting time for cycling. It is at the heart of the Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS) and some London boroughs are already leading the way by improving conditions for cycling and promoting its benefits.

"Outer London has a key role to play and is poised to reap the benefits of increased cycling. These include less congestion, cleaner air, healthier communities, and the economic benefits of more people making local journeys by bike.

"This report is based on a programme of research and aimed at those who set the priority for transport in local areas. By learning from pioneering cycling innovations, and drawing on the greater flexibility in local funding available in the new Local Implementation Plan (LIP) process, Outer London boroughs are in a better position than ever before to encourage people to get on their bikes and to make cycling a mainstream mode of transport and part of the local economy."
