Planning in Practice: Delivering Sustainable Transport Infrastructure Through the Planning System – A practical guide for developers, consultants and local authority stakeholders
Panel: Andrew Taylor – Countryside (Chair); David Milner – Create Streets; Qasim Shafi – LB Hackney; Giulio Ferrini – Sustrans
The NPPF contains several policies designed to promote the delivery of sustainable transport through the planning system – requiring both developers and local authorities to consider “transport issues … from the earliest stage”
Whilst national, regional, and local government may set an overarching framework for the provision of sustainable transport infrastructure, its delivery at site level is dependent on a collaboration between a wide range of stakeholders.
Local authorities and developers must work alongside other public and private sector bodies to integrate each new development site into the local transport ecosystem – aligning each individual scheme with a broader set of planning and infrastructure investment policies.
As both public and private sector organisations seek to bolster their sustainability credentials, this event will explore best practice in delivering sustainable infrastructure through the planning system.
It will consider how to:
- Deliver high-quality walking and cycling infrastructure
- Connect with existing public transport networks
- Work with national and local transport providers to ensure coordinated delivery of infrastructure and development.
