A new handbook supporting the concept of Triple Access Planning has been published. It brings digital accessibility and spatial proximity alongside provision for mobility together as the  ‘triple access’ approach.

An overview of the concept and a synopsis of the Handbook by Professor Glenn Lyons, who has led its development, appears in this issue. This is the main output from the 3-year pan-European project ‘Triple Access Planning for Uncertain Futures’.

"Planning for the future continues to evolve in the face of a changing world. What we did in the past will not work for the future. Even the recent shift, with greater interest in transport planning being vision-led and focused on people rather than traffic, it is still not enough," says Lyons.

"This Handbook, which offers new thinking, tools and techniques, case study examples and advice is the next evolutionary step. It supports a way of thinking and acting that is intended to mark a change from transport planning in the ‘predict and provide’ paradigm to ‘Triple Access Planning’ in the ‘decide and provide’ paradigm.

“This is vision-led (‘decide’) instead of forecast-led (‘predict’). It includes digital accessibility alongside spatial proximity and mobility (together making ‘triple access’). It also includes addressing uncertainty about the future."
