The recent Stern and Eddington reports for the UK Treasury emphasise the significance of the linkages between transport, landuse, the environment and the economy. Against that background, the purpose of this paper is to consider the future of transport planning in England given the liberalising thrust of the Barker Review on land use planning and the subsequent White Paper Planning for a Sustainable Future. In reviewing the demographic and economic assumptions of the White Paper, we conclude that in certain respects there are important mismatches between the emerging government policy on strategic planning and the Stern and Eddington Reports.
