The role of integrated transport and land use planning to reduce energy consumption and emissions

About this event

On day three (24 October) of the Global Engineering Congress (GEC), join this free-to-attend evening lecture, organised in collaboration with The Transport Planning Society (TPS).

The lecture will explore the role of integrated transport and land use planning in reducing travel demand and minimising its negative impacts, and the policies and planning tools required.

Speaker Martin Tedder from Transport for London will present the Mayor’s recent Transport Strategy and draft London Plan as an example of transport and land use integration.

Political and legal pressure on cities to address poor air quality has dominated much of the urban transport planning debate in recent years, energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions have received less attention. Yet the transport sector constitutes a large and growing proportion of total energy consumption and emissions in the UK and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

The Transport Planning Society recently published a set of principles stressing the importance of managing demand by working with spatial planners to minimise the need for movement of people or goods, and supporting options that encourage the least damaging alternatives.

The lecture will also include a panel debate and time for audience questions. Delegates will have the opportunity to network and continue the discussions over drinks in the ICE Cafe Bar.
