  1. Whitby could also act as a trial town to monitor:
    • pollution levels before and after introduction of electric buses to include air, noise & light pollution
    • Emissions per passenger kilometre (EPPK) – collect information for all journeys/capture data

  2. Ive always thought that pier road should be pedestrianised, no through traffic except for deliveries after a certain time in the evening or a certain time in the mornings.
