Speaker: Lesley Stephenson, Rail Registrar, CAHA Registrar Ltd

In the years surrounding the privatisation of the Rail Industry, the CAHA Registrar was established by the DfT. Alternative Dispute Resolution has played a major part in resolving disputes between licensed rail companies (rail passenger services operations and freight operators). All public and employer liability claims for damages brought against licensed rail companies are subject to the Claims Allocation & Handling Agreement (CAHA). CAHA is an effective way to speed up the claims management process and keep litigation costs to a minimum for all participants.”

Nearly 40 million Britons live in areas with illegal air pollution levels resulting in 40,000 premature deaths a year.

This one-day training course has been developed to bring practitioners up to speed with the latest developments in urban air quality management and assessment, to gain a critical insight into the existing process and to have the confidence to deliver solutions to improve public health and well-being. It will also examine how to deliver an effective plan for your community and local businesses; on time and on budget.

Participation and Consultation in Transport Planning - ONLINEBook Now
Start Date:12/05/2020 09:00
End Date:12/05/2020 17:00
Event Code:PTRC0644

 Taking into account the latest Government recommendations regarding social distancing and working from home regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the decision in conjunction with the trainers that this course will now be delivered via distance learning. The course will still have all the course work, workshops and interactivity as those delivered in the classroom, allowing for the same level of learning while taking into account the recommendations for these special circumstances. There will be a live trainer facilitating this course from 9:00 - 17:00 GMT.

Increasing importance is now being placed on the role of consultation and public participation as part of the policy and infrastructure scheme development process. Policy and best practice guidance encourages those involved, national and local government agencies, other public sector bodies, developers, and other agencies, to consider using both established innovative tools to engage with communities.

Not only is it important to ensure that public sector bodies ‘tick the boxes’ for public participation, but it is also important to ensure that projects achieve buy-in from the communities that they affect and reach people traditionally excluded from the conversation on built environment issues.

This course sets out what responsible organisations must do to enable inclusive development. In addition, and possibly even more important, it demonstrates, through practical case studies, the difference between running public participation well and running it badly.
