LONDON: Real world application of CIHT's influential guidance and the essential next steps
The UK needs more homes, but they need to enable healthy lives and successful economies. This event is aimed at transportation professionals involved in building successful new places, the challenges faced and how they can be overcome.
Integrating planning and transport is a key theme in the sector at present. The event will build on CIHT’s Better Planning, Better Transport, Better Places advice and bring together the key players in the sector. The day will be an opportunity to hear from those leading this approach and to get your questions answered directly. Furthermore, opportunities for networking will provide a chance to hear about new projects, make connections you will value and kick-start 2020.
There’s more to be announced in the coming weeks.

Advice for creating a more sustainable approach into transport, planning and creating better places
CIHT's Better Planning, Better Transport, Better Places advice document focuses on the critical practical steps that can be taken by planning professionals, developers, advisers, and local communities to overcome these barriers, from developing a strategic or Local Plan to delivering a development. It not only works within the context of current planning legislation and the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) but also provides recommendations for the government for improving current policy.
Through this advice, creating places that meet the requirements of the 21st century in terms of all the critical elements of environmental, economic, and social sustainability while also effectively delivering the homes needed will be possible. The effective integration of planning and transport is fundamental to achieving this objective.
