Transport for New Homes Award 2019


The Transport for New Homes Award, run in partnership with the Transport Planning Society as part of its Transport Planning Day, aims to recognise recent housing developments which have been located and designed so that residents do not need cars to live a full life. New housing that promotes walking, cycling and public transport and avoids dependence on cars can help us address the climate emergency and reduce traffic as well as providing good, healthy living environments. Members of the public, as well as professionals and housing developers, were asked to nominate recent UK developments of more than 500 homes with features including:

  • The right location for sustainable transport links
  • Attractive public transport
  • Good walking and cycling routes, within and in and out of the development
  • A pleasant public realm that isn’t dominated by car parking
  • Shops and services close to hand


The shortlist for the Transport for New Homes Award 2019 was announced at a House of Commons reception hosted by Lillian Greenwood MP, Chair of the Transport Select Committee, on 23 October:

  • Bath Western Riverside (Bath)
  • Kidbrooke Village (South East London)
  • Kilnwood Vale Phase 1 and 2 (Crawley, West Sussex)
  • Poundbury (Dorset)
  • Royal Arsenal Riverside (South East London)
