Bi-cycling, Public Transport & Carbon Neutrality

From my submission on the 2007 Draft Annual Plan & LTCCP Review…

Recommendations:

– That GDC increase the number of cycle lanes and include space for bi-cycles on all road bridges in the city.

That GDC provide more incentives for people to use public transport and reduce reliance on private motor-vehicles within the city areas. 

That GDC provide more incentives for people to use bi-cycles and horses for transport  in rural townships.

That GDC adopt a goal of being a ‘Carbon Neutral’ region and develop an action plan to achieve this by 2012.

That GDC adopt a goal of being a ‘Carbon Neutral’ organisation and develop an action plan to achieve this by 2010.

Rationale:

The future of humanity and a number of other species is threatened with extinction if we do not change our behaviour and it is the responsibility of community leaders to demonstrate through their influence and decisions a commitment to a sustainable future for present and future generations.
