Dear members,

Our next Polis Working Group meeting on Parking will take place in Lille on 27 March and will focus on different aspects of urban parking policies such as dynamic parking management, innovative parking policies and much more. Several of our members such as Leuven, Utrecht and Lille will be presenting their experiences. Click here for more information.

I would also like to remind you that our webinar dedicated to Small and Medium-Sized Cities (SMCs) is fastly approaching and will take place on Monday 25 March from 14:00 to 16:00. You can still register through this link if you are an SMC interested to discuss governance issues, challenges and solutions specifically inherent to your shape and size!

Finally, Polis responded to the Commission’s Transport White Paper evaluation roadmap and asked for more concrete steps regarding the strategy’s key policy targets such as the CO2-neutral logistics by 2030. Read our full response here.  In addition a response was given to the road map for evaluating the Alternative Fuels Directive.
