Transport Conference 2019
12th November 2019
Castle Green Hotel, Kendal, Cumbria, LA9 6RG
9am - 5pm

Overview: How people travel is changing

A conference to help change the conversation about how we look at transport and accessibility in rural areas with high visitor numbers.

We are bringing together experts from the UK and Europe as well as those with detailed knowledge of the transport situation in Cumbria. They will explore how a meaningful reduction in congestion and traffic in the Lake District National Park could be successfully achieved, despite a significant growth in predicted visitor numbers over the next 15 years.

Aims of the conference

The conference aims to identify ways to reduce traffic impacts on landscapes and environment, making for better visitor experiences, improving quality of life for residents, reducing pollution and carbon emissions and nurturing local prosperity.  ‘Business as usual’ is no longer an option, a step change in the way people travel is coming.  This conference aims to catalyse this change by bringing together people with ideas and organisations with the ability to facilitate these necessary changes.
