We are delighted to be joined for this edition of the Planning Futures Supper Club by
Richard Holden MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport, (Roads
and Local Transport).
One of the central challenges in delivering new development is to integrate it within the existing local transport systems. In some instances, this requires new enabling infrastructures, in others, new services. In order to bring forward new land for development, and to efficiently allocate land and transport resources, land use planning and transport planning need to work effectively together.
Mr Holden will give an after-dinner speech outlining how the Department for Transport supports the delivery of sustainable development.
