Transport for New Homes report, 2018

Our 2018 report, Transport for New Homes, revealed the deep flaws in the planning system which leave new housing developments with inadequate walking, cycling and public transport connections to surrounding areas. With limited facilities locally, residents are for the most part forced into car-dependency.

We visited more than 20 new housing developments across England. The first piece of research of its kind in the country, the report looked at what is actually being built and identified its deficiencies in relation to public transport, walkability and access.
