Interest in carfree (and low car) developments (housing, office and mixed use) is increasing throughout the UK. The number of car-free developments being constructed in London, in particular, is increasing for a number of reasons, including:
  • The community recognising the benefits to their quality of life that arise from the use of alternative transport modes, and from fewer cars in their local area;
  • The drive to encourage use of alternative modes of transport, such as cycling, walking, car clubs and public transport.
  • Regional pressure for increased housing densities.

Car-free and low-car developments are viable in areas that are well served by public transport and other infrastructure, providing residents and businesses with practical alternatives to private car use.
