Abstract:
A greater understanding of the impact of neighbourhood design on travel behaviour has long been sought as a way to shape sustainable mobility practice. The very reason for looking at this practice is to meet the future demand of settlements, which will improve air quality, reduce congestion, and create liveable neighbourhoods and reduce dependency on the private car. Whilst there is an extensive American literature on this subject, this is limited in applicability to European or British practice since the urban form variables, such as street layout and levels of car use in all areas, have a different scale. This study is concerned with the British experience of the relationship between neighbourhood design and travel behaviour. To this end a questionnaire has been developed to measure travel patterns, built environment characteristics and attitudes/preferences towards the current perception of residents about how their neighbourhood influences their travel and to identify and measure the causal relationship between the neighbourhood design and travel behaviour.
