Take part in September meetings to develop London's car-free outlook

London Cycling Campaign is supporting the creation of an association to promote new car-free developments.
The London Carfree Association would create a ‘demonstration’ development in London to compare to Vauban, Freiberg, a town famous for its pleasant car-free environment.
The development would show how living without cars can be a joy, rather than a hardship. Many Londoners don’t own cars, and yet do not have the choice of living in an environment which rewards that choice.
LCC has already supported the concept of car-free developments in its submission to the Outer London Commission and the mayor’s new plan for London.
