Happy & Healthy Streets
We are a local Ennis placemaking and mobility group that advocates for improvements in our public realm to enhance Ennis as a healthy place where people want to spend time.
Our first campaign is to make the streets in and around Ennis a place where people can safely enjoy walking and cycling.
The benefits of active travel (walking and cycling):
- improvement in our population's physical and mental health
- improvement in our town's air quality, by reducing traffic emissions
- improvement in social interaction, and by so doing, improve social integration
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we need to physically distance as we move about Ennis.
We want to reallocate and reimagine our public space to ensure that people stay healthy, keep active, and enjoy and support our local business.
