Conference: Better town centres, by bike or foot – Wednesday 10 October in Manchester

North West Active Travel Network is hosting a conference in Manchester Cathedral Visitor Centre on Wednesday 10 October from 10.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m. on Better town centres, by bike or foot.

Cycling and walking into town centres has declined in many places. Inner ring roads act as a barrier to walking and cycling into town centres from neighbouring areas. One-way streets and limited access discourage cycling. Parking on pavements means that people with pushchairs, wheelchairs or mobility scooters often are forced to use the carriageway. It can be difficult to find solutions that suit everyone. Improving access to town centres by bike and foot is one way of reconnecting them to their surrounding areas and helping ensure their survival. The conference focuses on smaller cities and towns rather than major cities.

The cost is £50 (£30 for campaign groups), including lunch and refreshments.
