CoMoUK makes key appointment to boost Scottish mobility hubs creation

Mark Dowey, CoMoUK

Shared transport charity CoMoUK has appointed architect Mark Dowey as its senior development officer for the built environment for Scotland.

His role will involve working towards the creation of mobility hubs, which bring together various forms of green transport and community resources, and are popular across Europe.

A strategic report by the Scottish Government earlier this year identified mobility hubs a key method of improving connectivity and reducing carbon emissions.

Dowey’s responsibilities will also include promoting shared transport options such as car clubs and bicycle-sharing, as well as liaising with the Scottish Government on planning reform.

Work will continue on encouraging Scottish businesses to adopt shared transport incentives for their workforce, and the public will be encouraged to consider alternatives to private cars through a series of campaigns and events.

Richard Dilks, chief executive of CoMoUK, said: “We are delighted to welcome Mark on board at an exciting time for the charity, shared transport schemes and the decarbonisation of transport that also leads to attractive places.
“The need for improved, sustainable and cleaner transport links becomes more apparent every day.

“Mobility hubs are already popular across Europe, and we want to see similar schemes starting up in Scotland.

“They enable people to travel around their cities in a greener and more efficient way, reducing congestion on busy roads and bringing a range of community activities together.

“The Scottish Government has identified these hubs as an important tool in boosting connectivity and working towards net zero emissions.

“Mark’s appointment will help prioritise this work, which will benefit people and businesses all across Scotland.”

Dowey added: “My varied experiences as an architect allow me to focus on the built environment delivery process, particularly in the physical establishment of mobility hubs in our urban and rural areas.

“A well-delivered infrastructure solution will be a key component to unlocking a greater uptake in shared transport schemes across Scotland.

“As we all head towards net zero, shared transport schemes can unlock a progressive attitude to transport and the environment.”
