This report looks at whether more walkable neighbourhoods with low levels of private car ownership can be encouraged by way of good planning policies and well-designed housing developments across Scotland.
Research shows that car clubs reduce congestion, improve air quality and reduce CO2 emissions by tackling car dependency and ownership. The Car Clubs in New Developments report outlines good practice and the experiences of key local authorities in implementing car free and low car developments. This is a briefing document from the report.
Carplus commissioned a study to explore the feasibility of growing car club operations in Renfrewshire. There is already a community car club (LEAP) which operates in Lochwinnoch, Bridge of Weir and Kilbarchan and a Zipcar operation at Glasgow Airport. The study explored potential business and residential demand in Renfrewshire and potential business models for implementation of additional car club operations in Paisley, Renfrew, Erskine, Johnstone, Houston and Linwood.
In November 2016, South Lanarkshire Council, working in partnership with Carplus commissioned a feasibility study to help determine whether there is scope for one or more car clubs to operate in the area.
This study, commissioned by Carplus, seeks to determine the feasibility of establishing a car club in the Scottish Borders Council (SBC) area. Berwickshire Housing Association (BHA) and Borders College were also key stakeholders in this study
