Deputy mayor Jenny Jones highlighted a recent plan submitted for Stratford, which included 10,000 car-parking spaces in an area with good transport links.
“I think it’s absolutely outrageous,” The Green Party member of the London Assembly said of the proposals. “How dare they when there’s fantastic public transport links nearby.
“Plans like that should be dismissed immediately. We won’t reach air-quality targets by 2006 and it will ruin that part of London. Car-free developments are the way forward.”
Jones told Groundwork’s Sustainable Developments - a just cause conference the mayor’s guidance was “woefully inadequate”, he knew it was, and he aimed to improve it.
Jones is championing better facilities for cyclists and pedestrians and is a strong supporter of car congestion charging.
