10 Overview North-West Region
11 Carbon abatement - journey distance by trip type
12 Priority spending – carbon abatement Ultimately we must target the factors that are used to calculate emissions: Mode Technical and operational efficiency Journey distance Speed Number of trips
13 How to prioritise spending on Smarter Choices PriorityMeasures Included (1) Reducing the number of trips Homeworking Tele/video conferencing Homeshopping / e-payments (2) Reducing journey length Community hubs Integrated bicycle and rail/bus Bike rental schemes (3) Technical and operational efficiency Plugged-In Places Driver training Fleet management Fiscal policy (4) Affecting speed and congestion relief Freight control Peak user charging Multi-occupancy lanes Average speed cameras (5) Mode switchCycling facilities upgrades Car clubs / car sharing database Parking policy
14 Carbon impacts: analysis of schemes Reviewed case studies, evidence and theoretical framework for measures in relation to: Total saving of each measure which is based on the percentage saving proportionate to the approximate NI % saving needed for Cost effectiveness – cost of each measure per tonne of CO 2 abated.

16 Evaluation (1) Best returns on investment in parking, freight, technology and planning policy. Cycling and walking and bus measures will generally score poorly as they are targeting short trips Largest gains will be made to middle distance commute, business travel, leisure and shopping i.e. especially between 5 and 25 miles. BUT NEED TO CONSIDER WIDER SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACTS

18 Evaluation (2) Cycling and walking score highest when looking at the wider local authority objectives Land use planning decisions, integrated community initiatives and PTP also score highly Parking measures and fiscal measures more controversial
19 What does this all mean? Informed local decisions on policy Balanced view of priorities Less reliance on PPG13 Focus resources Re-skilling of transport and land use planners

25 New LSTP Develop packages of measures that support economic growth and reduce carbon in their communities as well as delivering cleaner environments, improved safety and increased levels of physical activity.
26 Proposed schemes Encouraging walking and cycling Initiatives to improve integration between travel modes and end-to-end journey experiences Better public transport Improved traffic management schemes.
27 Possible ideas Integrated rail and cycle Fare free zones Bus for bikes School car share linked to infrastructure Small EVs for leisure trips Community travel plans
