- A survey shows asthma levels are down and people feel healthier die to the reduction in traffic noise, stress and congested roads.
- A flourishing of use of horses and donkeys by farmers is creating a revival of interest in breeding, riding and animal handling
- Totnes & District Cycle hire scheme is established. The small group started off recycling and repairing unused bikes, based at Totnes Station, they now have enough bikes and staff to service all the transit nodes.
- Residents groups take advantage of the bollards being offered by DCC to create filtered permeability of transport access to their street. Emergency services can still gain access.
- T&D Equine Association is formed to promote breeding and use of horses and donkeys on the land. A stud festival is held on the Plains with special exhibitions of horse drawn farm machinery. The rural regeneration horse breeding and handling course Dartington continues to be oversubscribed.
Policy Makers & Service Providers
- SHDC turns the rest of the parking spaces at Heath’s Car park back to a growing space, becoming small allotment spaces for the town residents. Parking in Totnes is restricted to North St and the old Somerfield car parks, most spaces are taken up by local car pools and for disabled drivers. All local authority vehicles and PSVs are methane / electric hybrids to utilise fully all the AD fuels and local electric generation. Hitching posts are installed in all the local village squares with horse troughs
- 50% of UK Motorways are decommissioned to provide additional rail routes for high-speed services and deliveries. National Rail services get a makeover as all trains are retrofitted for electricity only with PV generation on roofs, grid storage and faster speeds. New matting under the rails reabsorbs energy generated from vibration and reduces maintenance work
- The Totnes & District Travel Model has been implemented in most parts of Devon and is catching on much further a-field.
