Transport Planning Day 2019


Communities show transport planners what works

The People’s Award 2019

We had a great day at our Transport Planning Day event on 20th November held at the Institution of Civil Engineers. This is where we presented our People’s Award as well as the Transport for New Homes Award.

Transport Planning Day is the annual campaign coordinated by the Transport Planning Society and is supported by leading transport planning organisations as sponsors. Huge thanks to all our 2019 sponsors. 

Founded in 2018, the campaign brings communities, local politicians and professionals from across the built environment sector together to celebrate transport planning. We focus on showcasing good practice in community engagement for transport.

The campaign highlights how transport planners are key to solving so many of the pressing challenges we face, from climate change to public health.

Our People’s Award aimed to highlight good practice in putting people at the heart of transport plans.

We invited communities to nominate an initiative that has made a difference to their lives – an opportunity for communities to tell professionals what good looks like.

In 2019 nominations were open to individuals, community groups, local politicians, charities, campaigners, Parish Councils and Town Councils who can nominate a transport planning initiative.

The judges looked for projects that involved people in the planning and demonstrably improved access to services, quality of life and well-being.

We announced our shortlist on 23rd October 2019 at a parliamentary reception hosted by Chair of the Transport Select Committee, Lilian Greenwood MP.

The People’s Award winners were announced on 20th November, Transport Planning Day 2019, at the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Celebrating sustainable transport for new homes

In 2019 we also partnered with Transport for New Homes to highlight developments that put people’s needs first. The award recognises recent, large-scale housing developments which have been located and designed so that residents do not need cars to live a full life.

With the pressure on to build new homes, we want to make sure people's transport needs aren’t forgotten and highlight the vital role good transport planning plays in delivering new homes.
