Comments from the Planning and Infrastructure Task Force, Canberra Business Chamber
1. Active living and active transport principles
The Task Force’s membership is generally supportive of these changes involving the promotion of active living and active transport principles by the ACT Government. And we believe there is an opportunity to strengthen the rationale about why people should convert to these modes.
At the moment the reason for becoming more active is promoted on a health basis only – to reduce obesity and related diseases (refer to page 6 ‘The evidence for change’).
