Participation 2006

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Promotion of alternatives to single - occupancy car travel thereby reduring transport's contribution to pollution and climate change principally through:
- events on ITWMC day (see below)
- the LSP's Travel Plan Club in the form of individual pledges to use alternatives on journeys to work
- Colchester-wide publicity using local media, including local radio and their promotions with business and schools.
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:
Hickory Avenue, Greenstead, will be cloased for 8am - 6pm, from Hawthorn Avenue to Gorse Walk.
