The next regional meeting in the South East will take place on Friday 27 April in Horsham, hosted by West Sussex County Council.
The meeting will link with the theme of the training workshop 'Centralised Travel Plan Delivery: Funding and the Planning System' held just before the meeting from 10:30 to 12:30 in the same venue (separate registration here). If you wish to attend both the training workshop and the regional meeting then you will need to complete both Eventbrites.
The regional meeting will take place from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. In place of the usual ‘update from members’ we intend to hold small group discussions linked to the training workshop theme. With this in mind, we're keen to hear from anyone who has had any experience of delivering centralised or area-wide Travel Plan and would be interested in doing a short presentation at the meeting.
So far confirmed, a representative of Mott MacDonald will present on their Sydney Travel Choices project for Transport for New South Wales, described as follows:
As the first stage of the Tomorrow’s Sydney Programme includes the construction of a new Light Rail Transit that requires the closure of one of the major roads in the CBD [city centre] and thus re-routing of its traffic, Mott MacDonald’s programme ‘Sydney Travel Choices’ aims to relieve pressure spots throughout Sydney’s transport networks and encourage more active and sustainable approaches to travel in the CBD by enabling businesses to consider the travel implication of local construction work and facilitating the development of alternative travel plans. This approach was successfully applied during two Olympic Games and two Commonwealth Games and is underpinned by a core narrative of data analysis allowing the program to target its audience with data-led intelligence and provision.
