Creating a new community provides a unique opportunity to plan and implement transport systems in a radically different way. Conventional approaches will need to be turned on their head in order to create lifetime places that prioritise people over vehicles.
This Transport Worksheet supplements the initial guidance produced by the Department for Transport in the form of a ‘Menu of Options’ and concentrates on outcomes and a route map. It provides a ‘how to’ guide to steer those involved in the planning and implementation of eco-towns through the processes, as well as establishing a benchmark for what should be achieved. Both documents should be referred to and together form part of the Government’s advice on transport for eco-towns. It also needs to be remembered that from day one each householder will need to be able to reach essential services. It is essential that these services can be accessed without the use of a car.
