HEAT - assessing health benefits of walking and cycling

The Health Economic Assessment Tool, or HEAT, can be used when planning new infrastructure for cyclists or pedestrians, and provides valuable information for related economic and health impact assessments.

The tool can also help make the case for more investment in cycling and walking facilities by estimating the benefits of achieving national targets or illustrating potential consequences of declines in current levels of cycling or walking. HEAT can also assess a city’s current situation or past investment related to cycling and walking.

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.
