Transport for New Homes Award 2019


Showcasing the vital transport planning that goes into building successful and sustainable communities.

The Transport for New Homes Award 2019 aims to recognise recent housing developments which enable and promote walking, cycling and public transport and avoid dependence on cars.

With national and local governments across the country concentrating on delivering new housing, it's important to highlight the role transport planning plays in building successful and sustainable communities.

Proper planning means residents can move in to a new home and find themselves well connected to shops, jobs and services without the need for a car – good for our health, the environment and for the cost of living.

Transport for New Homes are running the award with the Transport Planning Society for Transport Planning Day 2019.

Winners announced on Transport Planning Day 2019

The winner will be announced on Transport Planning Day 2019 on 20 November at the Institution of Civil Engineers  in London alongside TPS’s community focused People’s Award.

How to nominate

Nominations can be made on the Transport for New Homes site.

The deadline is 26 August. 

Nomination Criteria

  • Nominations are open to all. Members of the public, professionals and developers are all invited to nominate developments.
  • Developments must be recent UK developments of more than 500 homes (the majority of which are occupied).

We are looking for places genuinely orientated around sustainable travel including frequent, good quality public transport to multiple destinations. These are places where you really don't need a car to live a full life.

The award is in partnership with Transport for New Homes. Read about their research on the BBC.
