Transport Planning Day People's Award



Our inaugural people’s awards are now open for entries. Communities are invited to tell the professionals how transport planning has improved their lives. This could include enabling the creation of great new places, new opportunities to travel for all, or simply making a small local difference to the journey to school or the shops. 

It’s often not the big projects that are the best solution – we want to hear about the ways transport planning has helped protect communities, as well as create new opportunities. The awards will recognise transport-related projects and initiatives that have made a genuine contribution to improving people’s access to services, quality of life and wellbeing.

Local people know which schemes have made things better for their communities. Our awards are about showcasing what makes a good scheme from the community’s point of view.

To qualify for entry, projects or initiatives must have been in operation for at least one year. Entries must be able to show how the outcomes have made a positive contribution to the principles of transport planningThe principles embody the idea that transport planners’ work should always be truly independent; questioning and open minded; honest about uncertainty; focussed on people; and understandable by everyone.
