NORWICH LOCAL GROUP
Norwich is a wonderful, walkable mediaeval city. Our group wants to make it even better for anyone getting about on foot, in a wheelchair, pushing a buggy or on a mobility scooter. A walkable city benefits everyone: all ages and all abilities.
WHAT WE'RE DOING
Living Streets Norwich will be focusing on issues where we can make a difference, and engaging with the councils and with other user groups to be the voice of the 'person on the pavement'.
As a fairly new group we are still finding our feet and working out our priorities, but they might include:
- Less pavement clutter- trying to ensure a clear route along footways, and encouraging the siting of EV charging points and Beryl bike and scooter bays on the road;
- Better crossings- the right crossings in the right places, with shorter wait times at 'beg buttons' and adequate crossing times;
- Four wheels on the road- an end to obstructive pavement parking that means pedestrians have to venture into the traffic;
- Amenities that improve our streets- public seating, well designed bus stops and more street trees to offer shade.
