Yesterday’s public meeting was a total embarrassment. There was no chairing. Council officers didn’t have answers to basic questions, despite such answers being readily available. Worst of all though, nobody from MCC was there to give a positive vision of what a low 1/2
traffic neighbourhood is for, and what it can achieve for people and the environment. It almost felt like this process has been forced on the council, but this is a council project which was set up by our local councillors @basat_m @bernardstone & @Dzidra78! 2/-
We say to @AngelikiStg, head of transport at MCC: We want this scheme to work, but if you don’t, it won’t. And failure will rest on your shoulders. Whatever the outcome, we will always be here campaigning for the essential changes we need to see. 3/-
It’s essential that local people attend the remaining meetings to make their voice heard. The next one is on Thursday. Details here:

We need more honesty in this consultation process.

The money for the active neighbourhood trials comes from the 'Mayor's Challange Fund', which is being used to implement a Greater Manchester-wide high quality walking and cycling network.

The Fund is for the purpose of designing a Greater Manchester wide walking and cycling network which, when completed, will be one of the largest in the world.

The GM Bee Network project, headed by @Chris_Boardman recognises that previous attempts to improve walking and cycyling through infrastructure has failed - it has not enabled the shift to walking and cycling from car use that it was supposed to. 3/-
