Our quality of life depends on transport and easy access to jobs, shopping, leisure facilities, and services. We need an efficient and integrated planning and transport system to not only support a strong and prosperous economy but to reduce carbon emissions.
The event is for transport planners, members, and the general public who are interested in the development of our cities through better integrated planning and transport.
CIHT believe in radically improving the outputs and outcomes of planning and transport by working differently and more intelligently. This starts with a clear vision to create better places for people to live in and is achieved by adopting new approaches at the strategic level and when it comes to planning individual developments.
Led by CIHT in collaboration with TPS and RTPI, Better Planning, Better Transport, Better Places is the result of a great deal of work by professionals interested in creating better places by better integrating planning and transport.
Better planning, better transport, better places also provides practical solutions to tackling the challenge of climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
