Good practice guides take a great deal of time to assemble and tend to go out of date quite quickly. TPS wants to try a new approach for transport planning initiatives which have wider value. These would include “on the ground” schemes, but also new ways of working, and new policy approaches. The aim is to spread best practice and contribute to the wider public understanding of transport planning as well as some of the useful work that we do. It will hopefully give a better structure for identifying our award for Transport Planner of the Year.
The approach we want to try is to get our members (public or private sector or jointly) to submit a description of a transport initiative or scheme (ongoing or completed) which has innovative or particularly successful content, in a short, standard format. It would be open to organisations of all shapes and sizes, plus individual freelancers. We do stress, however, that this a good practice resource not a marketing exercise! The involvement of younger professionals in preparing the submissions would also be a benefit and we could tie this in with completing the PDS units.
There will be a new section of the website which contains the guide and it will be featured prominently on the home page and in the specialist transport press.
The wiki approach will be reviewed after a year to check whether it is working, if so how it could be improved and if not it will be archived. It is expected it will take a year to have a reasonable number of schemes submitted.
