Walking & Cycling in and around Ivybridge Issues & Opportunities: Community Workshop
16 July, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Walking & Cycling in and around Ivybridge Issues & Opportunities: Community Workshop from 3:30-7 pm in Ivybridge Library, The Watermark Centre, Erme Court, Leonards Rd, Ivybridge, PL21 0SZ. Local sustainability group, PL21 Transition Town Initiative, with the support of Ivybridge Town Council, has commissioned Sustrans to undertake a study into improving active travel in and around Ivybridge. With Sustrans, they have teamed up with Highways England to tackle traffic congestion, explain health benefits and contribute to climate change by asking you to tell us what you think about walking and cycling. Whether you live in Ivybridge, South Brent, Ugborough, Ermington, Cornwood or Lee Mill, you are invited to pop in, come and think about issues, opportunities, constraints, possibilities and tell us what you think about walking and cycling in Ivybridge and the local areas. When nationally 25% of all car journeys are 2 miles or less and so few people walk or cycle yet so many people do so in Northern Europe, what would encourage you to change your travel patterns to walk or cycle, especially to work or school? Tell us about things that help and things that don’t! Our vision is that every child age 12 upwards should be able to walk or cycle to school unsupervised in safety from everywhere in our area. Staff will be on hand from Sustrans to answer queries and local volunteers will be there to engage with you. See also workshop on 10 September. FFI: please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
