There's more to mobility than cars, Mr Williams

  • Comment

Austin Williams describes the reduction in parking in sustainable housing as 'denying people access to personal mobility' (AJ 14.4.05). This relatively recent myth stands on its head the truth that, for very many people, personal mobility means walking, cycling or using public transport.

For some this is by choice, but for many people on low incomes or benefits and pensioners, not to mention children and young people, it is a matter of necessity. What Austin and others in love with their cars fail to notice is that for all of these people, personal mobility is greatly undermined by cars filling the roads.
