Transport innovation in historic towns

Transport innovation in historic townsEHTF has campaigned for many years for traffic management which does not compromise local distinctiveness or the historic built environment.

The first conference of 2007 will explore some of the ways in which this might be achieved. In particular, it will look at the Transport Innovation Fund and how three Member Authorities are using this opportunity to address a range of issues.

It will also explore schemes in Ludlow and Oswestry which bear close examination for the lessons that might be learnt about simplicity of design, access, parking, partnership working and innovative approaches to other traffic management issues.

Supported by Shropshire County Council, the event will be held in Shrewsbury on Thursday 29 March, with activities during the evening of Wednesday 28 which include a familiarisation tour and wine tasting and supper at Tanners - the wine merchants established in 1842.
