Event Details

National policy objectives, from public health to planning to transport, recognise the need for the integrated and strategic planning of housing and transport to support the delivery of cleaner, more active and less car-dependent communities. However, the practical mechanisms to implement such outcomes need urgent review.

 Evidence collected in a variety of recent reports, including Transport for New Homes (Foundation for Integrated Transport, 2018), and Location of Development (RTPI, 2018) highlight a typical lack of sustainable transport integrated into new housing developments. This event will explore what needs to change, and how such change can be embedded in an evolving planning framework:

  •  Session 1: The Big Picture: Where are we now, and where do we want to be? Where does the planning system need review to support sustainable, integrated transport options?
  •  Session 2: Understanding the underlying trends: strategic planning for growth areas, responsibility for integrated planning, developing integrated planning skills and resource
  •  Session 3: Case studies around overcoming structural barriers, doing it better and getting it right
  •  Session 4: Have your say: a collective plan for the future

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
