Brighton and Hove wins Europe’s top transport award

CIVITASBrighton & Hove has won Europe’s top environmental award for policies to promote clean transport. It was named as City of the Year in the CIVITAS Awards 2014 for its implementation of ambitious sustainable transport policies.

Make Moving Messages produced a short film to showcase the various improvements to transport, travel and road safety and this was used to support the European Award Entry.

Lead councillor for transport Ian Davey said: “These award-winning initiatives are not novel to Brighton & Hove – instead they represent best practice all across Europe. However the difference we have made is in actually delivering best practice in Brighton & Hove, instead of the city lagging behind Britain and Europe.  It’s immensely satisfying to have this recognised by a judging panel of renowned transport experts from the UK and abroad – and to have it recognised that we have involved huge numbers of residents in these decisions.”
