Transport for New Homes has visited over 20 housing developments to see what we are building in terms of transport and ensuing lifestyles. Having published our report we are now organising a series of events to stimulate discussion and find practical ways for planning and transport to better work together.

Read a summary of what we found on our visits, complete with photos.

We visited… Priors Hall Park, Corby

Priors Hall Park is an urban extension of some 5,000 homes located on the North East fringes of Corby. The site contains a mix of brownfield and greenfield land and the area  forming the core of the site was formerly an ironstone quarry producing material for the  steelworks. You can read a summary of Priors Hall Park.

We visited… Great Western Park, Didcot

In 2015 it was announced that Didcot, situated to the South of Oxford, would become a ‘garden town’ with 15,000 new homes and 20,000 new high-tech jobs by 2031. Great Western Park is a large new development of some 3,000 homes on the fringes of Didcot, one in a sequence of new developments. You can read a summary of Great Western Park.

Asked at our Leeds event: We know it's crucial to have public transport in place when the first residents move in; but this is hard to achieve because developers like to release houses in phases to avoid flooding the market. Share your thoughts/examples here.

A common theme raised by many of our speakers: the planning depts of local authorities need to be properly funded. The number of planners has been slashed in recent years.
