We are delighted to announce that the 6th Local Transport Summit will be held this autumn for the first time in Wales, in partnership with the Welsh Government and Transport for Wales taking place at Future Inn, Cardiff Bay on the 8-9th December 2022.

The Summit, established by the sector's leading publication Local Transport Today, brings together in a unique way senior people involved in UK local transport from a range of perspectives including political leaders and decision-makers, those responsible for strategy, system design and delivery within transport authorities, and others with a connection to the future of our local transport system as providers, advisors, researchers and activists. The event has the active and support and engagement of the Department for Transport, Transport for Wales and other significant professional bodies.

In existence since 2015, the Local Transport Summit 'goes on the road' each year, and has in the past visited different parts of England, including Oxfordshire ,Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire, Hertfordshire and most recently West London . It has established a position as the key annual event for this sector.

 This year, we make a very timely visit to Wales in recognition of recent innovative and pioneering work across a range of policy areas offering a very significant and important new perspective on local transport. A significant time allocation will be made this year for a showcase session by the host area, with keynote speech by the appropriate Welsh transport political leader and discussion on the range of transport innovation taking place in Wales including the national 20mph local roads speed limit initiative, revised transport appraisal guidance, Sloman roads review and North Wales /A55 Transport Commission to name but four.

Professor Peter Jones will be our lead academic commentator and discussion chair, along with other senior speakers from local government, transport consultancy, University research and other sectors impacting on the way transport is being reshaped by technological and behavioural change and the need to address the climate emergency.

The format of the event is a residential 'Chatham House rules' discussion and participatory forum, addressed by experts and including audience participation. It takes place over 24 hours from lunchtime to lunchtime in a relaxed residential environment with an evening networking dinner at the end of the first day at which we continue discussions prompted by addresses by other sector leaders, and a distinguished expert speaker.

 We are also in discussions to arrange study visit in Cardiff Bay / Cardiff city centre to see public realm improvements and new rail station and bus interchange etc which will take place on the morning of the 8th prior to the event starting early afternoon.

 The event will be located in the impressively regenerated Cardiff Bay, with excellent transport accessibility reasons for both our English and Welsh audience.
