Residents would pledge not to own a motor car.
Europe's first car-free housing scheme is under construction in Bremen, Germany. For long journeys residents will have access to a car pool but locally they will travel by bicycle or public transport.
Plans for a similar scheme in Cambridge have already been rejected.
'As car ownership continues to increase, this problem will intensify. I think in some areas it is going to be physicallu impossible to own a car and park it in the same street or even the same area,' said Mr Holmes.
