Dear Participant,

The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and The Local Government Technical Advisers Group (TAG) are undertaking a short survey of attitudes and outcomes of the local plan process, specifically in relation to how effective it has been in securing sustainable travel outcomes as a policy tool for development management.

One of the core planning principles of the NPPF (para. 17) is to actively manage patterns of growth to make the fullest possible use of public transport, walking and cycling, and focus significant development in locations which are or can be made sustainable.  It is arguable whether this is being delivered in the real world. We keen to understand how this principle is being delivered in practice through the local plan process, and hence would welcome your views and experiences.

We will use the results of the survey in a forthcoming event in September 2017 as a basis for evaluating what further action is required to ensure the practical planning and delivery of sustainable transport for new developments. Respondents to the survey will be offered a discount to the September event.

Your response to this questionnaire will remain anonymous. Any data collected through this survey will be stored in accordance with the Data Protection Act (1998) and only used for the purposes for understanding perceptions of sustainable transport in relation to the Local Plan process.

Data will be analysed in aggregate and respondent’s answers will not be scrutinised in detail so please answer the questions openly and honestly. Completing the survey should take no more than 15 minutes.

Many thanks,
