Ensuring Successful Planning Applications for Transport PractitionersBOOK NOW
14/11/2018 09:00:00 - 14/11/2018 17:00:00

Following the introduction of the National Planning Policy Framework in March 2012, the government condensed long established planning policy guidance into a Planning Practice Guidance portal, published online in March 2014. Both NPPF and wider changes to the planning system have drastically altered the ground rules for transport planners and engineers working within the field of development management.

?The course is suitable for those who have recently started or returned to working in transport development management, planners who require an overview of transport considerations pertinent to development and those responsible for the management or commissioning of staff undertaking development management activities.

Business Engagement and Travel Planning - LondonBOOK NOW
15/11/2018 09:00:00 - 15/11/2018 17:00:00


From reducing congestion and solo car use, to making the workforce healthier and happier, promoting good leadership in the community, making business cost savings, improving accessibility to work sites to lowering CO2 emissions… travel plans offer such a wide range of benefits that many local authorities have developed travel planning programmes that cover not only the workplace situation, but also schools, residential areas, zonal areas and even individuals. Whilst they are undoubtedly an effective tool for securing outcomes from the development planning process, are travel plans the best way of engaging the business community?

This one day course explores the motivational factors behind workplace engagement in behavioural change programmes, equipping practitioners with a tried and tested toolkit for use in developing their own engagement programmes.

Cycling Infrastructure Design - LondonBOOK NOW
16/11/2018 09:00:00 - 16/11/2018 17:00:00
Cycling is quickly becoming established as a mainstream mode of transport, especially in our larger cities. All the evidence point to its benefits: quicker journeys in urban areas, improved access to jobs and services, reduced congestion, better health and liveability. Getting more people, of all ages and abilities, onto bikes is a key ingredient in the recipe for delivering better, more competitive and more progressive cities.

Retro-fitting high quality cycling infrastructure is a significant challenge for engineers. Restricted space, UK driving rules and culture and political support are key challenges.

This course explores different approaches to making cycling feel convenient and safe in urban areas, illustrated by case studies of innovative cycle infrastructure design. We will help you to understand how to plan networks and interventions to suit different circumstances. We will show the best available methods for designing for cyclists at junctions, main roads and quieter streets.

Technical Report Writing - LondonBOOK NOW
21/11/2018 09:00:00 - 21/11/2018 17:00:00
All too often, the impact of many hours of work can hinge on the ability to explain the results effectively to others. Many professionals lack confidence in their report-writing skills, and feel that their credibility suffers because their written reports are not a fair reflection of their expertise. Anyone involved in technical work will quickly discover the challenges presented when trying to communicate their ideas, information, proposals or recommendations to colleagues and clients.

Executive summaries are increasingly important: they make an initial impact, particularly on senior decision makers or management, and may be used by readers who will never need the full report.

The course includes discussion of how to write an effective and engaging summary and the opportunity to put ideas into practice.

Whilst development of travel plans has become second nature across the UK over the past two decades, it is important to get back to basics with how travel plans should be developed and delivered.

This course focuses specifically on the successful elements needed to construct, deliver and monitor travel plans and will be helpful for those involved in operations, logistics, HR, property and planning as well as those employed in more conventional sustainable transport roles.
