Integrating land use and transport planning: the benefits

Webinar, 10.30 - 12.00

4 Nov 2022

Webinar

Integrated land use and transport planning addresses a city or region’s longer-term challenges, working to a shared vision of what a city or region aspires to be in the future, and helps to coordinate investments and policy decisions to achieve that vision.

As set out in the Climate Change Committee's advice, integrated land use and transport planning is now recognised as being a critically important part of reducing transport emissions.

"The recognition of the need to reduce traffic growth, alongside funding for improved local public transport and active travel, are also positive steps. However, the Government has not yet set out a clear vision of the extent of traffic reduction that is desirable, nor a coherent set of policies to deliver this. Actions and funding need to be more joined-up across the country and between transportation modes, and key enablers such as spatial planning and transport appraisal methodologies must be better aligned to the objective of providing widely available, cost-competitive, sustainable alternatives to private car travel."


This webinar will show how integrated land use and transport planning can help to:

  • reduce the negative social impacts of ‘transport systems’
  • reduce the amount of travel altogether
  • shift transport modes
  • influence behaviours in favour of reducing emissions
  • measure and quantify change and impacts

Topics will include:

  • creating 20 min sustainable Transport Zones - the issues/challenges around implementing these consistently and equitably on a local/regional/national scale
  • maximising benefits of sustainable transport investments by concentrated land use strategies around public transport corridors
  • mitigating Core Strategies – Land Use integration verses Additional transport provision
  • urban design to encourage behavioural change
