About the event

Across the UK, new developments are being designed, consented, and built out with underpowered and inconsistent approaches to the important role shared transport can play in delivering sustainability. In this context, the panel engaged with the issues raised in CoMoUK’s new report ‘New developments and shared transport: cutting car dependency’ (link below) discussing ways that we can encourage built-environment stakeholders to implement shared transport offerings in new developments and the reasons for doing so.

The event was a roundtable format with four expert contributors discussing the key topics raised in the CoMoUK report. After each topic was debated by the panel, we invited audience questions and comments for the panel’s response.

Speakers:

  • Richard Dilks, Chief Executive @ CoMoUK (Event Chair)
  • Danielle Torpey, Project Director @ Hadley Property Group
  • Debs Allen, Innovation and Future Thinking Manager @ Scottish Federation of Housing Associations
  • David Milner, Deputy Director @ Create Streets
  • Rose McArthur, Director of Transport and Highways @ Cheshire West and Chester Council
