Book now for the next TPS webinar on Community Engagement in Transport Planning on 13 July from 1800-2000. 

Community engagement is a hot topic for transport planners, for large infrastructure schemes or smaller local schemes such as car-user sensitive Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs). Outcomes of community engagement can make or break a scheme no matter how well it has been planned.

This Webinar will bring together public engagement experts from across the UK who will share their experience and offer advice to transport planners.

Speakers will include

  • Dan Philips, Senior Research Fellow in the Intelligent Mobility Design Centre, Royal College of Arts who was involved in the Our Future Towns Project last year, co-financed by TPS,  and which was featured in our Transport Planning Day programme in 2020.

  • Elizabeth Barner, Transport Planner, WSP Leeds who facilitated online workshops with Calderdale Council. The project focussed on hard to reach communities and established a range of voices and designed workshops so that representatives did not intimidate each other. What was special for this consultation is that there was engaged discussion amongst participants who were specialists in their neighbourhoods. Elizabeth will talk about how online workshops allow some people in and exclude others, and how the focus group format of finding the commonalities and differences of opinion between different participants is incredibly useful.
  • Plus two other speakers to be announced.
