Research Report 610 The assessment of the effects of small-scale development proposals on the transport network

Published: | Category: Integrated land use and transport systems , Research & reports | Audiences: Land developers, Local & regional government

The national integrated transport assessment guidelines used by practitioners in New Zealand only provide guidance for the assessment of significant sized developments, setting out the approach to be taken with varying assessment levels relative to size. It is becoming increasingly evident there are cases when small-scale developments, which do not trigger the lower thresholds for assessment, are having an effect either individually or cumulatively on the transportation network. In these instances, it may be necessary for the impacts of these small-scale developments to be assessed in an appropriate manner. This research investigated if and how the potential effects of small-scale developments should be identified and in doing so has provided an opportunity to fully understand if the absence of national guidelines is limiting the opportunity for effective network management and land use planning. Both Auckland and Christchurch have gone through a process of identifying appropriate thresholds that will trigger the...

Research Report 601 Understanding the value of transport investment in historic and cultural heritage

Published: | Category: Environmental impacts of land transport , Research programme , Research & reports | Audiences: Advice and assistance, General, Land developers, Local & regional government

The 2015 Government Policy Statement on Land Transport focuses on economic growth, productivity, road safety, and value for money. The transport system must also support economic, social, cultural and environmental well-being. This means that road controlling authorities (RCAs) must mitigate the impacts of their projects on heritage sites without placing an unreasonable funding burden on the economy. RCAs such as the Transport Agency have their own approaches for assessing and managing historic and cultural heritage. No consistent national guidelines for heritage conservation actions exist, however, which creates risks and opportunities during project development, delivery and ongoing ownership of heritage.The requirements for heritage conservation follow from designation processes, but do not necessarily strengthen the heritage and cultural values of structures and environments. An economic perspective of such values can improve the value for money of heritage investments, and support New Zealand’s heritage stock.
