Welcome to the autumn 2018 edition of Momentum’s Connect; where we take a closer look at the many policy initiatives launched over the summer.
This November marks the first Transport Planning Day, launched by the Transport Planning Society to raise the profile of transport planning and its role in changing people’s lives. We’re proud to be transport planners – working with our clients and industry partners to create forward-looking solutions that address the needs of the future city.
People are always at the centre of our work and our aim is that communities benefit from our strategies and the recommendations we make. It has been a busy summer for new transport plans and policies. In this special edition of Connect – published to coincide with Transport Planning Day – we take a closer look at six recent policy changes and review what these new policies mean for our clients and the people who will ultimately benefit from them. We also take a more informal poll of our consultants’ views in our article ‘Is the wait for the green man over’?
Finally as we celebrate our sixth birthday this autumn, we reflect on the changes that have taken place within the company and in the wider London transport planning context.
