Motor traffic has reduced the quality of life in town and city centres and shopping is probably the function most affected. Restrictive policies have reduced car accessibility to city centres and together with declining environmental conditions, have encouraged the development of out-of-town centres, to the detriment of traditional downtown shopping areas. A better approach is what has been termed "environmental management". In this context, schemes to pedestrianise shopping streets in Essen and in Norwich are described and it is argued that they constitute a major improvement to the quality of life. The number of the covering abstract of the textbook is IRRD abstract no 212297. /TRRL/
