Speakers

  • "Politics is the art of the possible" – The case for Active Travel Infrastructure in Bath
    Councils are complex beasts with many moving parts  working at different speeds and in competing directions. BaNES just announced 23 Low Traffic Neighbourhoods. Something I feel I played a key role in delivering. When I started campaigning in 2013 I used to have hair. This is my story. It could be yours (except the hair bit).
    Adam Reynolds, Walk Ride Bath

  • Gear Change: A bold vision for cycling and walking
    The publication of Gear Change and LTN 1/20 in July 2020, when it had so much else to deal with, clearly demonstrates the Government’s commitment to a future where cycling and walking are the default choice for short journeys.  Gear Change has the ambition of half of all journeys in towns and cities being cycled or walked – a ‘bold vision’ indeed. 
    In this presentation Phil will summarise the key messages of both documents, including the implications on the planning and design of new developments and the role of Active Travel England, a new Statutory Consultee. Phil will also explore the relationships between LTN 1/20 and the National Model Design Code and the forthcoming revised Manual for Streets

  • Case study - Local Cycling & Walking Infrastructure Plan for the Heart of Teignbridge
    Hannah Clark, Transport Planning Team Leader at Devon County Council

  • Case Study - Co Cars / Co Bikes in Exeter
    Creating spaces for people – How a virtuous circle of electric shared mobility services can deliver net zero, healthy and active travel for all. This case study will focus on Co Cars’ biggest network of services: Exeter. Here, their car club will hit 50+ vehicles by year end through partnerships with Innovate UK, local authorities, housing developers and private businesses. Meanwhile, Co Bikes, the UK’s first shared e-bike scheme, now has over 100 bikes at over 20 locations around the city, with many more joining the fleet in the coming months.
    Mark Hodgson Managing Director, Co Cars / Bikes / Delivery
