It should be recognised that independent mobility may be retained through cycling and/or mobility scooters - for some people cycling is easier than walking. So appropriate road infrastructure to enable cycling/mobility scooters can increase independent mobility in an ageing population.

So this policy needs to include reference to how town centres need to be attractive places to go to and spend time - this includes the streets not being dominated by vehicles and on street parking, and being safe places to cycle and walk.
