New large-scale communities provide a unique opportunity to create places which enable people to live in healthy, happy places that reduce their impact on the environment, while enhancing social and economic wellbeing and tending to the future needs of residents. They are in the ideal position to provide innovative transport solutions from the outset, and as businesses and industries develop. 

Sustainable transport in new communities relies on everything from the right location, to the design, delivery and stewardship of place to embed active travel and make sustainable transport the most affordable and convenient option for residents.  

This webinar explores how different places are setting up the appropriate infrastructure to adapt to new technologies incorporating transport solutions such as automated vehicles, micro-mobility devices or demand-responsive transport and enabling sustainable transport, cycling and walking in new communities. 

This is part of the TCPA New Communities Group programme of events.

This webinar is sponsored by SLR Consulting and Active Travel England.
