Welsh Active Travel Conference 2015

On 5th November the 2015 Active Travel conference took place in Cardiff. If you were unable to go, the Welsh Government has published a handy summary video to its Youtube channel.

One person who did go along was Simon Nurse, General Manager of Odoni-Elwell.

Highlighting the flaws of a  presumptuous approach to infrastructure and the often – misquoted –  “build it and they will come*” strategy, suggesting a ‘ask them what they want and there’s a good chance the uptake will be greater’ is a generally more effective and appropriate approach.

Simon has a good rundown of the day on his blog, linked above. He seemed to come away from the day feeling pretty positive about it all.

Did you go along? How was it for you?
