Things to check when you register to attend
Be aware that when you register it is a good idea to use the system check option, and that you may also need to download and install an app/software to be able to access the webinar. It’s a good idea to do all this a little way in advance of the webinar so you don’t miss the start of the webinar while you try to get it all sorted!
Advice for asking questions during the webinar
There is an option to submit questions to HE when you register.
Last time HE held webinars as part of the consultation you had to type your questions into the chat facility of the webinar portal. If you have any questions before you go into the webinar you might want to type them up before the webinar so you can simply copy and paste them into the chat facility. Saves you time and reduces the time you’re distracted away from the presentation typing questions!
Remember there could be a lot of other people attending the webinars and time for answering questions will be limited, so you may end up needing to email or phone HE to get the answers to your questions. Bear in mind it can take a while for them to respond to email and phone questions, and they advise it can take up to 15 working days.
Can I attend or watch the Community Impacts Consultation webinars again?
Highways England released recordings of the webinars that took place in the last consultation, it appears they will do the same again this time around. If and when they share any webinar recording we will share details here.
