Guidance on transport assessment

The UK Department for Transport produced guidance for local authorities and developers on making transport assessments. A transport assessment is a comprehensive and systematic process that sets out transport issues relating to a proposed development. It identifies what measures will be taken to deal with the anticipated transport impacts of the scheme and to improve accessibility and safety to all modes of travel, particularly for alternatives to the car such as walking, cycling and public transport.

The Department for Transport withdrew this publication in October 2014. This guidance has been superseded by Transport evidence bases in plan making.
