“Wednesday 22nd September is designated World Car Free Day in which motorists should be encouraged to give up their cars for a day.  Given that Farnham Town Council has declared a Climate Emergency, what initiatives does Farnham Town Council intend to take to encourage councillors, staff and residents to use alternative forms of transport (public transport, cycling and walking) where they are available on that day?


Since both Surrey County Council and Waverley Borough Council have both declared a Climate Emergency, I intend to ask a similar question at meetings of Surrey County Council’s Cabinet that is being held on 20th July and Waverley Borough Council’s Full Council that is being held on 3rd August.”
