Now available: Triple Access Planning for Uncertain Futures – A Handbook for Practitioners’

The EN-UAC project Triple Access Planning for Uncertain Futures aims to advance guidance to improve the resilience and adaptability of sustainable urban mobility plans (SUMPs) in the face of uncertainty. The project has recently published a handbook for practitioners’ which now is available and free to download.

The Handbook by the project Triple Access Planning for Uncertain Futures, “supports a way of thinking and acting that is intended to mark a change from transport planning in the ‘predict and provide’ paradigm to ‘Triple Access Planning’ in the ‘decide and provide’ paradigm. This is vision-led (‘decide’) instead of forecast-led (‘predict’). It includes digital accessibility alongside spatial proximity and mobility (together making ‘triple access’). It also includes addressing uncertainty about the future.” It offers tools and techniques, case study examples and advice intended to support those already taking forward TAP and those considering becoming part of it.

The Handbook is a guide for those who are already conversant with transport planning or other planning approaches. It explains the triple access perspective on planning, the handling of uncertainty, addressing access for goods, and the organisational and institutional challenges associated with Triple Access Planning.
