Next steps for transport in Scotland - infrastructure, decarbonisation and promoting economic growth
From: 20 Nov, 2018 until: 20 Nov, 2018
Location: Central Edinburgh, Scotland
THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will be a timely opportunity for policymakers and stakeholders to discuss the key issues for Scotland’s transport system ahead of the expected publication of The Scottish Government’s first draft of a new National Transport Strategy in early 2019.
Delegates will consider policy priorities needed from the new National Transport Strategy to improve delivery of transport infrastructure, with reference to proposed changes to the planning system within the Planning Bill, and build a transport system capable of supporting the aims of The Scottish Government’s Economic Strategy.
They will also discuss next steps for taking forward policy proposals designed to build on the current National Transport Strategy’s aim of reducing transport emissions and meet targets in The Scottish Government’s Climate Change Plan of a 66% reduction in emissions by 2032.
Further sessions will consider key issues surrounding the implementation of Low Emission Zones, including their likely effectiveness in reducing emissions and improving air quality as well as their potential impact on businesses and motorists.
The agenda also looks at the potential impact of The Scottish Government’s £60m Low-Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme in improving uptake of low emission and ultra-low emission vehicles.
