Transport Planning Day, 13th November 2018

Transport Planning Day will be held on 13 November at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London and a wide range of people have been invited. The day is a fantastic opportunity for the community representatives to engage with transport planning and to celebrate the positive impact it can have on people’s lives, as well as the diversity of our profession.

Session 1 – 15:30 to 17:30

The afternoon session brings together community groups and transport planning professionals for an interactive discussion about best practice in community engagement in transport planning. It will enable the professionals to hear from communities about what they value in transport planning.

Session 2 – 17:30 to 21:00

The evening session features a keynote speech from Lilian Greenwood MP, Chair of the Transport Select Committee.

During the evening, we will announce the winners of our first ever People’s Award for a transport planning initiative that has improved people’s lives as part of place-making.
