Online technical information network launched in October
The website was launched in October and is being well used by practitioners. SATIN is looking for new members to sign up to aid the dissemination of information and allow the technical access community to bring together all the relevant information into one portal. If you have not done so before please click here to sign up for future newsletters and to become a member. Please feel free to pass this onto other practitioners as the more members the more information sharing can take place.

Sustrans, a member of SATIN, launches "New Design Guide"
'A guide to controlling access on paths'
This is a comprehensive guide which challenges the designer to consider the real evidence for the need for access controls. From this starting point alternative measures can then be considered before taking you through the process of designing appropriate controls if that is what is required.

SATIN invites you to shape future technical days
SATIN's working group are reviewing the opportunity for developing a programme of technical skills sharing events and site visits for network members in 2012. Full day events will be free or charged at minimal cost. As well as using specialists, it is hoped that network members would also deliver training and information sharing in their own specialist areas. The working group would like you to take a few minutes to answer the following questions on Survey Monkey, to help them gauge your interest in attending such an event. What subjects you would like to see covered? Can you or your organisation offer support or resources to the training programme?

Thank you for taking the time to read the first newsletter, the website is being updated weekly and the working group will continue to upload information which is useful to assist in our work area. The intention is to complete a newsletter quarterly. In future only members of SATIN and who have signed up for the newsletter will receive it. If you have any interesting 20mph speed limit articles, exciting recycled material news, culvert case studies or other interesting items then please submit them to let fellow practitioners learn from your work.
