The event

The morning workshop will focus on Active Transport.  Delegates will hear from good practice examples of walking and cycling schemes and why local authorities have chosen to implement them on an organisation-wide scale.  Successes and barriers to implementing such schemes will be discussed.  There will also be an opportunity for networking and to discuss both the health and sustainability benefits of integrating active transport into everyday practice.  The latest active travel funding opportunities and policies will also be discussed. The afternoon workshop will focus on Innovative Transport.  We are delighted that this workshop will be sponsored by Cenex.  Cenex operates as an independent not-for-profit consultancy specialising in the delivery of projects, supporting innovation and market development, focused on low carbon vehicles and associated energy infrastructure.   As with the morning session, delegates will hear from local authorities that have successfully implemented schemes that include the utilisation of low carbon vehicles, charging points and transformation of fleets.  Each case study will include an appraisal of barriers and successes. The session will also highlight those funding sources that councils can utilise to help bring in low carbon vehicle infrastructure for their sites and their residents, as well as summarising fleet support available.  It will also look at what may happen to these funding pots subject to potential Government legislation changes. An agenda for both halves of the workshop is available here.


This full-day workshop is for local authority Sustainable Development Officers and Transport Officers primarily, and the morning session is also for our Sustainability and Public Health Network members.  Other attendees will be considered.  The event will be split into two halves, a morning and an afternoon workshop.
