Lowestoft Local Links has just launched.

It's a project promoted by Waveney District Council and Suffolk County Council to encourage more walking, cycling, public transport and car sharing in Lowestoft. It's hoped to reduce congestion, improve local air quality and make local people healthier, fitter and have more money to spend on the nicer things in life (rather than petrol!).

To achieve local businesses need to encourage their staff to make healthier, more economical and environmentally friendly travel choices. By joining the project Lowestoft Local Links can help you reduce your business costs, boost staff productivity, improve the health and wellbeing of your staff, and further enhance your local reputation as a good employer.

But why should you join? By becoming involved with Lowestoft Local Links projects you and your employees will have free access to advice, discounts and benefits, including:
