Transport Assessment
Stage 2: Influencing Travel to the Development: Location

Choosing an accessible location will determine whether there is real opportunity to promote sustainable development and the policy objectives of PPS 1: General Principles (DOE 1998)
Ideally, the assessment of accessibility by different modes should be undertaken for a number of possible sites before decisions are made on possible locations and site layouts. Sites identified in Development Plans for future development or re-development for those activities which generate a significant number of trips should be those most easily accessible by non-car modes.
