Preston , SUCCESS

A successful event has been held in Leyland to share the experience of the Civitas project in Preston and South Ribble and also the results of the TravelSmart personalised travel planning programme in Lancashire.

The day opened with a general outline of the project, followed by presentations on the UK & Ireland CIVITAS Network, public transport infrastructure, creating a Clear Zone and developing a freight quality partnership. Visitors from across the UK, along with local officers and councillors, also heard the results of the largest travel planning project of its kind undertaken in the UK in presentations by Werner Brög of Socialdata and James Ryle from Sustrans.As the CIVITAS SUCCESS project enters its final phase this was a great opportunity for sharing knowledge developed in Preston with other cities who may be interested in becoming involved with Civitas. Representatives of local residents were also updated with news of the project’s current situation. Delegates were able to take a number of leaflets on display, including some of those used for personalised travel planning, as well as cloth shopping bags, pedometers and Shared Wheels air fresheners promoting the car sharing website. The presentations are available for download, either as powerpoint or pdf.
