Abstract

This paper presents the main findings from a Phl) research project into the treatment of transport impacts on land use in the UK s~ategic planning system. 'Transport impacts on land use' are broadly defined as any alteration to the pattern of urban, social or economic development caused by transport policy. The central indicators of distributional change can thus be either economic (such as property rents, employment levels or gross domestic product per head), or social/demographic (such as population or households).

There is considerable interest in the role of transport policy in shaping urban development, especially in terms of fostering economic growth, most clearly seen by the recent commissioning of the Standing Committee on Trunk Road Assessment to consider the links between transport and economic development (Department of Transport, 1996).
