Transport Planners: where are we all coming from? London

About this event

What type of transport planner are you? In this presentation, Richard will question the motivations and mindset of practising transport planners, offering five caricatures. These broadly correspond to four or more mindsets or paradigms for transport planning, which in turn illustrate the co-habitation of 'predict and provide' and 'demand management' philosophies in the profession in the UK today.

This presentation originally featured at the DfT Policy Innovation Fund symposium (May 2017) and will provoke us to think about the theory and practice of transport planning to assist in setting the scene for events in 2018 on the current and future requirements of transport planning.

Join us for drinks in the New Year where Richard will be stimulating debate and toasting us into 2018, which promises to be a decisive year for TPS.
