Active Transport Infrastructure Development Plans

Monday, 21st June 2021 1200hrs – 1345hrs

With the pandemic bringing into focus the need to create sustainable communities which encompass fitness and wellbeing, the Government allocated £175m to councils across England for the development of new cycling and walking spaces last year with the funding supporting schemes like new School Streets – where streets around schools are closed to motorists during school hours, segregated cycle lands and low-traffic neighbourhoods.

Surveys and independent polls show “strong” public support for more schemes of this nature with local councils, top developers and the built environment sector at large starting to invest more in this type of sustainable infrastructure.

This webinar will focus on future active transport sustainable infrastructure plans and looking at the role the built environment must play. The industry needs to make changes – moving towards a zero carbon mindset and developing infrastructure in physical terms but also a change of mindset to address the changing world.

We’ll hear from Councils, LEPs, Transport Bodies and Green Infrastructure providers from across the UK who’ll share their plans and talk about the impact that it’ll have on creating sustainable, active, healthy and green communities.

Speakers for this event include:

Dame Sarah Storey,
Active Travel Commissioner
Nick Fairholme,
Director of Project and Programme Delivery
Joanna Clayton,
Kit Allwinter,
Active Travel Policy Manager
  • Transport for London – TFL recently awarded new contracts as part of its Surface Transport Infrastructure Construction Framework. The framework will help ensure walking and cycling projects continue to keep the capital’s road network well-maintained and safe. Nick will talk about TFL’s aim to deliver more schemes to boost walking and cycling across the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN), including future projects to expand London’s growing network of high-quality Cycleways which will help to cut congestion, air pollution and road danger across London.
  • Sustrans – Joanna gives legal and policy advice on planning, highways and other legal issues at Sustrans. She’s also responsible for developing a Legal & Planning Strategy for the National Cycle Network, to safeguard, improve & grow the NCN using our legal and planning systems in the UK. She advises on walking and cycling schemes and advises on matters including the status of historic planning permissions; permitted development; certificates of lawful proposed use; the content of planning applications; cycle tracks; creating or diverting public rights of way; the creation of higher rights for cycling; eliminating barriers and access controls on public paths. Joanna will join the session to expand on her work at Sustrans and as the project delivery lead for the Active Travel England planning functions project for the DfT.
  • Sheffield City Region LEP – Kelham and Neepsend just north of Sheffield City Centre is to be designed as an Active Neighbourhood, with the view to creating an environment which promotes physical activity. The proposals include encouraging exercise, improving sustainable travel and creating safer and more attractive travel routes into and around the area – especially for walking, running and cycling. At the heart of the proposals is a reduction in traffic – some through road closures – and encouraging people to adopt healthier, active travel habits. The proposals are part of the Council’s Connecting Sheffield scheme, which focuses on adapting the city’s infrastructure for the future, to allow for walking, running, cycling and public transport to be the first choices of travel, from commuting to work to meeting friends. Dame Sarah Storey, multiple Paralympic champion and Sheffield City Region’s active travel commissioner will join the session to talk about these plans and her future active transport and travel vision for the region.
  • West Yorkshire Combined Authority – West Yorkshire Combined Authority are one of the UK’s most forward-thinking public-sector organisations in the realm of active travel. Whether I be talk of cycle “super highways” to connect the region’s remote towns and villages to urban centres or the push for active travel schemes to be integral to high street and town centre renewal, Kit and his team are drawing up ideas and bidding for funding to make their ideas a reality. As part of this event he will share insight into some of the plans that are to be brought forward in the coming years.
