A joint conference from the Royal Town Planning Institute, Transport Planning Society and Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation
Transport plays a central role in the built environment: shaping patterns of land use and movement, unlocking sites for development and regeneration, and influencing everything from economic productivity to social inclusion, and from resilience to the transition to zero carbon.
However, the integration of transport and land use planning can be challenging in practice. Despite some recent improvements, policy and guidance is largely focused on managing the impact of new development on transport networks, while modelling and appraisal processes often struggle to account for wider impacts to people and place.
This can lead to a mentality of ‘predict and provide’, where assumptions of future transport demand are based on outdated trends. Planning on these assumptions fails to capture the complex and dynamic relationship between transport and land use, and makes it difficult to respond to disruptive trends such as technological innovation, environmental risk and changing consumer preferences. A better approach is needed.
New advice from the CIHT, RTPI and TPS describes how transport and land use planners can work with communities, businesses and other stakeholders to create transformative visions for sustainable mobility and land use, and deliver these through Local and Strategic Plans within the context of the NPPF. Through a combination of presentations and interactive workshops, this conference will provide practical advice for professionals, and debate about what needs to change.
