Representation Summary:

Yes. The fundamental reason why the existing area has a very low uptake in non-car modes is the historic high provision of car parking across the NEC. This is a legacy of earlier developments in other times. Although there are very good public transport links, including a main line railway station, and cycle and walking infrastructure to these existing employment areas, there is little incentive to use modes of transport other than the car due to the abundance of car parking and the proximity of the strategic highway network, also the immediate environment around the station is not welcoming This needs to be addressed to provide a balance and sustainable transport strategy for the NEC area as a whole.
