Planning Advisory Service commissioned three research papers to look at the linkages, challenges and opportunities of the integration of strategic planning and key agendas of transport, the natural environment and health. The papers, through academic and policy reviews and workshop and research projects, highlight the present realities and challenges to integrated delivery and tries to give recommendations to planning authorities that wish to produce integrated strategic plans. Embedding these agendas with strategic plans will allow a coordinated approached to place making across a strategic area. Recognising the role that strategic plans and coordinated planning can have in adding value when delivering places that is more than just the costumery housing provisions. This report produced by the University of Manchester & Troy Planning + Design looks at the links between strategic planning and transport to provide Local Planning Authorities producing, or planning to produce, a strategic plan with a guide for how to work with transport bodies at the local, regional, and national levels, and how the requirements of these bodies can be fully integrated into their strategic plan making to ensure the production of more effective strategies.
