 Making London more pedestrian friendly 
Pedestrian activists in London recently hired a consulting firm to investigate ways to make London more pedestrian and bicycle friendly. The report, Towards a fine City for People London 2004, is available as a PDF file:
On the basis of the findings a set of overall recommendations have been put forward. The recommendations describe the change of mindset that needs to take place in London where the overall emphasis on vehicular traffic needs to be refocused to encompass other transport modes. A general discussion of urban quality has been raised with the report and a process has begun towards improving the quality of the public spaces and thus inviting people to repossess their city.
