The need to integrate transport and land-use planning policies has been widely recognised in many countries for a number of years. England is no exception: government planning guidance has emphasised the need for integration of land-use planning and transport policy for some time. This paper looks at the reality of the situation in practice and examines the extent to which transport and land-use planning policies are integrated in local authorities in England. The paper outlines the policy context for integrated transport and land-use planning policies in England and discusses some of the professional and organisational barriers to policy integration. It synthesises recent literature on the subject and also the views of local government officers involved in transport and land-use planning policy. The paper reports that in practice transport and land-use planning policy making is not always well integrated at the local level.
