Welcome to KonSULT, the Knowledgebase on Sustainable Urban Land use and Transport.
KonSULT is designed to help policy makers, professionals and interest groups to understand the challenges of achieving sustainability in urban transport, and to identify appropriate policies. It also provides detailed information on individual policy instruments which will be of relevance to researchers and students. While international in coverage, it has recently been updated to support the development of the third round of UK Local Transport Plans. It has been developed with support from the European Commission, the UK Department for Transport, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund.
It contains three levels of information:
Home (the current level) provides general introductory material and a
facility to register queries, comments and suggestions.
Policy instruments: a Policy Guidebook provides information on each of the policy instruments available to urban transport planners. It adopts an approach which is consistent with the logical structure in the Decision-Maker’s Guidebook, and provides consistent and comparable assessment from first principles and based on case studies. It also includes an option generation facility which enables user to identify the individual policy instruments which may be of most relevance to their needs, and to combine these into effective policy packages. A fuller outline is given in the Introductory Page to the Policy Guidebook.
