Unfortunately this seminar is cancelled until further notice.
Dr Scott Copsey and Professor Stephen Joseph will chair this discussion reflecting on the fascinating recent report from Transport for New Homes, on what is really happening in relation to sustainable transport in new garden settlements.
There are a large number of garden towns and villages being promoted, including two in Hertfordshire in Hemel Hempstead and Harlow. The master plans for these include artist impressions of cycling and buses or trams, and there are a lot of commitments to giving priority to sustainable transport. However, new research by the Transport for New Homes Group shows that in practice the transport investment going into these settlements is overwhelmingly about new roads and very little on everything else. This lecture will explore this gap between visions and realities and suggest how this gap can be narrowed and the visions in the master plans can become a reality
