The 'ActDev' project supports evidence-based site location and transport infrastructure prioritisation around new developments, and new housing developments in particular.
In this context, this workshop will provide a space to discuss the relationship between active travel and the planning system.
The focus of the workshop will be a new prototype tool from the ActDev project, led by the University of Leeds in collaboration with CycleStreets Ltd, UK PlanIt, and the transport planning visualisation tool A/B Street.
The workshop will give participants a first insight into the tool with, for the first time, three key strands of evidence. When combined, these can provide a strong foundation enabling evidence-based decision-making so that the planning system can help, rather than hinder, active travel and sustainable lifestyles:
Planning data: The PlanIt API provides access to planning application data from Local Authorities across the UK
Accessibility data: Government Journey Time Statistics and datasets generated by the project show journey times and walkability/cyclability to key trip attractors. These will provide information on the suitability of locations, and help to identify where improvements may be necessary to enable safe walking and cycling associated with new developments
