Join us for the first CPD opportunity of 2018:


Leeds City Council has unveiled proposed measures it is looking to implement to improve air quality, which includes the potential introduction of a charging clean air zone for some roads around the city.

CIHT are hosting a seminar at WYCA’s offices in Leeds City Centre, to explore these proposals which are currently under consultation, as well as discussing other recent research into road-based air quality impacts.


Speakers will include -
•    Dr James Tate - Associate Professor at the Institute of Transport Studies, University of Leeds
•    Andrew Hickford - Project Manager at Leeds City Council


Topic for discussion include:

 The proposed Leeds Clean Air Zone: how the recommendation was arrived at, the consultation process, how it will inform the final plans, and how funding will be sought to support those impacted

• Forecasting the road transport fleet turnover and vehicle emission trends, including the impact of the evolving Euro 6/VI emission standard legislation

• The total cost of ownership of diesel, petrol, plug-in hybrid and full electric vehicles (EVs), and the business and environmental case for petrol-hybrid taxis


Refreshments will be served from 6pm, with the seminar commencing at 6.30pm
