Participation 2006

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
The Council will be closing a number of on-street parking bays around Farringdon Station and have invited designers to create new spaces. A tour of the parking bays will be held and the best design will be chosen by public vote. The bays will all have a climate change theme.
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:
On-street parking bays will be restricted, resulting in much lower parking capacity for cars.
