What will transport in Leeds look like in 2030?

5:30pm for 6pm start, Albert Rooms, Leeds Town Hall, FREE

Leeds Transport in 2030 – our vision Leeds Civic Trust asks 'Where Leeds transport should be in the year 2030?'

Chaired by transport expert and social historian David Ellis, speakers will include:

  • Paul Chatterton, Professor of Urban Futures University of Leeds
  • Rob Greenland, Co-director Social Business Brokers CIC
  • Emily Ingham, Principal Transport Planner at Fore Consulting
  • Cllr Lisa Mulherin, Executive Board Member for Climate Change, Transport and Sustainable Development
  • Martin Stanley, Leeds Cycling campaign
  • Leah Stewart, Associate Director Civic Engineers

After a series of short presentations addressing the question – where should Leeds transport be in 2030 – using the Trust’s Transport vision as inspiration, there will be a discussion and Q & A.

Leeds – the Liveable city: competition

We also be launching a competition to show how a part of the city could be transformed with the practical application of the key principles in our Transport Vision. We will invite members of the public, stakeholders and businesses to re-imagine a key part of the city now dominated by highways as an attractive, green and people friendly place with good pedestrian, cycling and public transport links. The area we have chosen is the east side of inner city Leeds – an area that is dominated but has the potential to be transformed. Following a series of workshops, the most compelling ideas will be drawn together in a report to be produced by professionals, and this will be presented to Leeds City Council.
