TRKC publishes new Thematic Research Summary on 'Land use planning'


Land use and transport are interlinked as land use affects and is affected by transport policy.

The land use planning tool focuses not on the transport system itself, but on the land use patterns which generate the demand for transport. The overall emphasis is usually on shaping the pattern of development and influencing the location, scale, density, design and mix of land uses in order to reduce the need to travel, reduce the length of journeys and make it easier for people to access jobs, shopping, leisure facilities and services by public transport, walking and cycling.
The new Thematic Research Summary on ’Land use planning’ is available for download from the Thematic publications section of the TRKC website.
