Living less with the car

BY PAUL OSBORNE
@ VOL 15 ON MAR 16, 2018

York remains a unique and attractive city, in part because it has always sought to deter cars from entering the city centre.  The historic core has been preserved by pedestrianisation, cycle routes, car parking policies, and park and ride.  But as the city grows, how do we nurture the city’s wider neighbourhoods to become less car reliant? Paul Osborne discusses how can developers tempt us with car-free living rather than automated double garage doors? And what do we all stand to gain from living less with the car?
