Prior to the lockdown, Leicester was a city with ambitions to improve urban mobility and encourage more sustainable travel choices. We are now going through unprecedented times arising from the Covid-19 outbreak, public transport usage is being discouraged, with greater take-up of cycling, walking and home working being promoted. So have the city’s ambitions changed and how will this affect local employers, employees, residents of, and visitors to the city?

This latest LBV lunchtime event will be the first of our regular events to be held virtually. The webinar will feature informative presentations including:

  • Cllr Adam Clarke (Deputy City Mayor) on plans to enhance urban mobility and sustainable travel options in the short to long-term
  • The results of a survey of Leicester-based employers and their staff on how Covid-19 might impact how they will travel to work in the future
  • A reflection on the business perspective from Chris Hobson at the East Midlands Chamber and from Pick Everard’s Alastair Hamilton

We really hope that you will be able join us to hear about the latest developments in urban mobility, take this opportunity to ask questions related to transport planning and make your voice heard.
