ABSTRACT
This article reports on the seminar entitled Transport and Regeneration which was held at the Sheffield Hallam University in 2002. The seminar was designed to appeal to those with a general interest in the links between transport and regeneration. Speakers were specifically picked to represent the three key areas of planning, funding and the operator perspective. The elevation of South Yorkshire to 'Objective One Status' for attracting European funds is a key issue for improvements in the area. The first speaker, Graham Read, started off from a planning perspective. Second speaker was Ruth Middleton and she summed up why South Yorkshire has Objective One status, what the aims of Objective One are as well as iterating the Objective One vision. The third speaker was Tony Depledge reminded the audience that operators have to strike a balance between catering for new and existing customers within scarce resources and that new clients should not necessarily be gained at the expense of existing clients.
