Place & Movement

Doing more with less: joining the transport and planning dots

20 Nov 2012
** Last chance to book **

Our November 20 event, Place & Movement, offers an excellent opportunity to take the lead in setting the agenda for creating more resilient, smarter and activity-friendly places.

What we do really know about how we use our urban centres – now and in the future?

John Dales, event chair: 'Having professionally witnessed the failures of grade-separated approaches to urban planning, all talk of flyovers, flyunders and pathways in the sky is a demonstration that car-centric thinking is, sadly, not only alive but kicking....' This event will explore:

  • Analysing town centre 'spend by mode'
  • The truth about parking: pricing, policy, models and management
  • Post-Portas review: real places or reality TV? What have we learned?
  • How important are cars to places, really?
  • New attitudes to car ownership and use
  • Mapping, wayfinding and future urban information systems
  • Future urban mobility: planning for change

Speakers include:
