Transport and land-use planning are intrinsically linked through policy and strategy decision making through to designing places and spaces that function and work. Over a number of decades the two professions have tried to integrate transport planning into land-use planning with many excellent examples around the UK. That said there are many areas that do not function, with highways dominating spaces which do not integrate with the environment they serve. Congestion affects everyone’s daily life but this also has knock on impacts in terms of economics, wealth creation, health and general accessibility. The seminar aims to bring together different experts and professionals outlining the different approaches taken to integrate transport and land-use planning from using traffic and accessibility models to assess the impacts of land-use schemes to the planning of good urban spaces which cater for all modes.
