Integrating Land Use and Public Transportation Planning
- Onsdag 10. oktober 2012 kl. 9:00 - 17:00
Learning from the making of light rail project
Integrated planning approaches that include multiple sectors - notably land use, environmental and infrastructure – can have a substantial influence on ur-ban configurations and sustainability. The integration of planning and development of public transport, other modes of transport and land use is increasingly recognised as a potentially effective mechanism for achieving long-term sus-tainable development trajectories. Re-searchers from Aalborg University in Denmark (Urban Planning and Mobility Research Group),
Swedish VTI (National Road and Transport Research Institute), and
Norwegian TØI (Institute of Transport Economics) are involved in an intensive research collaboration to investigate Nordic public transportation initiatives
(Skåne, Aarhus and Trondheim) aiming to represent innovative and integrated policy making for promoting sustainable mobility. While integrative approaches can become effective planning strategies against ‘urban sprawl’ and ‘unsustainable development’, the relationship between public transport and land use planning is particularly crucial.
Experiences in practice include coordina-tion problems, tensions among different planning sectors, institutional constraints of routinized practices; overcoming such constraints requires new efforts in plan-ners’ action. This workshop aims to trig-ger a discussion among planning practi-tioners and planning researchers, taking as departure point the experience of making light rail projects.
