The UK faces many challenges: meeting its climate change targets, an uncertain economic future following the Brexit vote and improving peoples’ health for example. On the transport policy front there will be other challenges, for example the growth in vehicle ownership and use, encouraging greater walking, cycling and use of public transport. Better integration of sustainable transport with spatial planning can help promote healthier lifestyles through making walking and cycling much easier as well as enabling greater public transport use. But in the past integration has proved difficult.

In the future how will local authorities react to the requirements of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the need to develop Infrastructure Delivery Plans (IDPs) as well as Local Transport Plans (LTPs) so as to minimise the transport impact of new developments? Can developers and housebuilders be convinced of the merits of providing better facilities for sustainable transport (walking, cycling, buses etc)?
