    I am concerned about various points. The first, is that to make it impossible for cars to access certain neighbourhoods means that emergency services, tradespeople, medical and care professionals, would all be unable to visit or park there, and residents would apparently be unable to have cars.
    The second is that to restrict parking spaces to one per two dwellings would be unworkable.
    Thirdly, some disabled people can only get around in cars adapted for their needs.
    Fourthly, I am glad that the need for orbital as well as radial routes into towns is recognised, but trams should be considered as well as buses. Ultra-light trams, such as those already running between Stourbridge Junction and Stourbridge Town, are self-contained (no electrified rails or power lines needed), cheap, non-polluting, and needing a shallow trackbed therefore allowing easy access to service pipes and cables.

  2. That is a great idea re. trams!
