Speaker: Cllr Geoff Hill, Deputy Leader Local Independents and Cabinet member for Highways and Transport, Customer Service Centre and Employment The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead


The Thames Valley great is delighted to welcome Councillor Geoff Hill who is Deputy Leader Local Independents and Cabinet member for Highways and Transport, Customer Service Centre and Employment.


Councillor Hill will provide an update & a presentation on the new Maidenhead cycle routes now the public consultants are fully completed with settled designs.

Cyclists in Maidenhead now have a dedicated new 1.3km cycle route, making healthy active travel across the town safer and more convenient, thanks to the completion of the £2.8m Missing Links route. 

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead has constructed the new route in phases, with the final part focused on upgraded paths, a new bridge, landscaping, and signs at Town Moor. The whole route connects current and future residential areas in the north with the town centre and railway station to the south. Pedestrians can also use it.


The overall scheme, mostly funded by government’s Local Growth Fund through the Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), includes improvements at a number of key locations to help people transition to cycling or walking for shorter journeys, supporting the council’s work to tackle climate change. 

The council would like the route to be adopted into the National Cycle Network in due course.

Employers who have already completed the Employer Standards say it is helping them develop talent pipelines, close skills gaps, increase diversity and attract job and apprenticeship applicants.

This joint webinar with the Careers & Enterprise Company, there will be an opportunity to hear from employers about how it has benefited their businesses. We will show you how to use the tool and demonstrate how it will benefit your business.

2024 East of England Net Zero and Climate Resilience SummitBOOK NOW
18/07/2024 09:00:00 - 18/07/2024 16:30:00

When: 18 July 2024, 09:00 - 16:00
Where: Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, CB1 1PT


Join us for our 2nd annual Net Zero and Resilience Summit, where four leading organisations are once again uniting forces to drive progress in the vital areas of Net Zero and Climate Resilience.

Proudly brought to you by the East of England Local Government Association, England’s Economic Heartland, The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and Transport East, this summit promises to be an enlightening and action-oriented event.

Together, we are dedicated to tackling the pressing challenges of climate change head-on, and through collaboration and innovation, we aim to pave the way for a sustainable future. By bringing together key stakeholders from various sectors, including government, industry, and academia, we will explore cutting-edge solutions, share best practices, and chart a course towards a resilient and carbon-neutral future.

The East of England has a unique set of environmental opportunities and challenges. Our region produces half of the UK’s offshore wind energy and has plans to do much more. However, the East of England is the most susceptible region in the country to the impacts of climate change including coastal erosion and drought. Furthermore, car ownership levels are extremely high due, largely, to our region’s rurality. This has a massive impact on carbon emissions.

At the 2024 East of England Net Zero and Climate Resilience Summit, partners from the public and private sector, will come together to explore the following themes:

  • Decarbonising rural connectivity
  • Green economy and skills
  • Behaviour change
  • Building climate resilience
  • Net zero freight and logistics
  • Farming and land use
  • The role of hydrogen
  • Finance and equality

The full day event will be an opportunity to hear from influential speakers and attend workshop sessions.

Speakers

  • Professor Yvonne Barnett, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research and Innovation), Anglia Ruskin University

At UKWA, which she joined from Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, she has pursued an agenda of economic, social and environmental sustainability, as well as driving diversity and inclusion. At the 2023 CILT Awards for Excellence, Clare won the prestigious Sir Robert Lawrence Award, which recognises the lifetime achievement of an individual, for their outstanding and sustained contribution to the profession of logistics and transport. The Year of Warehousing is a high pro-file, year-long campaign to highlight the critical role of warehousing in supply chains, the sector’s major contribution to the UK economy, the essential employment of 1m people, and the key role it is set to play in embracing solar power to achieve UK’s net zero goals. It coincides with the 80th anniversary of the Association’s inception in 1944, and includes an ambitious programme of 80 site visits across the UK by Clare, whose aim is to showcase the high tech, fast-moving working environ-ments inside UK’s warehouses.
