Participation 2006

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
North East Lincolnshire Council run a year round campaign promoting sustinable travel choices, to reduce congestion, improve air quality and accesibility and encourage healthier forms of travel. This promotional activity supports the investment in cycling, walking and public transport facilities. For Mobility week we will be creating a giant public work of art from one of our town centre streets, encouraging our local communities to think more about how we could make alternative and better use of our road space.
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
Victoria Street West is passes directly through our main shopping Centre. It is to be closed to traffic later this year and will become a pedestrian shopping area.
