7.4.1 The programme will have a positive impact on sustainability by encouraging a shift in transport mode from car use to cycling. This will also contribute to improving the health and well-being of the local community and air quality. The design guide includes an aspiration to employ low energy use equipment e.g. lighting units; using SUDs (sustainable drainage) compliant materials; and following the Council’s Sustainable Procurement Strategy for sourcing materials. It is estimated that the Mini-Holland Programme will reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 1,000 Tonnes per year.
7.4.2 During the construction phase of this scheme the Council intends to plant 100 additional trees along the street to improve its overall look and feel.
