Estates Gazette: "Prioritise pedestrians on the high street"

Link to Estates Gazette

"An interesting press release from an organisation called Living Streets came rattling into the in-box a few hours ago.

"It's [sic] headline screams 'Cars have driven shoppers off our high streets'. It is a response to the CLG publication 'The Future of High Streets', which considers the work done as a consequence of the Portas Review in 2011. ...

"So... Living Streets has produced a report 'Making the Case for Investment in the Walking Environment' which totally challenges the CLG proposals to relax parking restrictions in high street locations to encourage custom.

"The report evaluates the health, economic, social and environmental benefits of investment in walking friendly public spaces, and finds that investing in walking environments can support local economies by increasing footfall, improving accessibility and attracting new business and events."
