The Government’s Gear Change vision aims to transform the role of cycling and walking to help tackle climate change, improve air quality, and reduce congestion on our roads. To deliver this ambitious vision, active travel will be embedded in wider policy making and local authorities will be encouraged and empowered to take bold decisions. Planning applications will be refused, and funding will be refused (or rescinded) if standards set are not met.
The ramifications of Gear Change will be complex and will require local authorities and developers to work together like never before. We have the skills, experience and knowledge to help local authorities and developers adapt to these forthcoming changes and new demands.
At Momentum we thrive to work collaboratively and to facilitate long-lasting relationships between both private and public organisations whilst simultaneously delivering schemes that work for people. Each development will require its own unique solutions. We work closely with leading architects and local authorities, providing design and analytical advice to support the design of schemes that support walking and cycling.
