Project B Products: Tools to improve Option Generation for ...

Generating Strategic Options and Exploring Distributional Impacts Final workshop of the DISTILLATE programme Great Minster House, London Tuesday 22nd January 2008 Peter Jones UCL 1 Objectives Objectives/Indicators (7) Scenarios (11) Assess problems (8) Barriers (10) Possible instruments (9)

Possible strategies (11) Predict impacts (12) Optimisation (14) Appraisal (13) Compare solutions (13) Implement (15) Evaluate performance (15) Monitor (15) To develop option generation methods

(Bloxwich) Community space design (Blackpool) KonSULT: Generating Packages of Measures KonSULT is a web based knowledgebase developed at the University of Leeds http://www.konsult.leeds.ac.uk Assesses potential contribution of over 40 transport and land use policy instruments, to achieving a range of objectives/ addressing problems Uses both a first principles assessment and review of case studies Provides information about previous applications of selected instruments KonSULT Developing Option Generation Component The option generation tool has been developed to allow users to interrogate the information within the KonSULT database

and develop packages of policy instruments Users define their local circumstances and requirements, and the software then scores instruments in terms of their suitability in two steps: Step 1 Uses information within KonSULT to assess each policy instrument, based on the criteria supplied by the user. Scores and then ranks each one. Accessible at: http://www.konsult.leeds.ac.uk/new/private/level2/filter.php Step 2 Takes data from Step 1 and adds information on synergy or barriers to create potential packages of pairs of instruments. Add on available from [email protected] Input Criteria for Step 1 Example Output Step 1 Step 2 (Packages)

.xls spreadsheet model Uses output from step 1 Individual can select / unselect the indicators to be included in packages It creates a ranking of pairs of indicators using the combined score of the two policy instruments from step 1 and then modifies this score using either the synergy or barrier matrices Example Output Step 2 Accessibility Planning Options Development of several techniques: To assist with problem diagnosis as well as option identification Some designed for use with local residents Others designed for application by sector professionals Includes consideration of distributional impacts Resident Discussion Groups: Existing Access Patterns

Direct Access by Public Transport Access via Interchange by Public Transport Limited Availability of Local Fresh Food Information, Quality and Availability Add Access Issue Clear List Suggested Solutions Personal security concerns groups hanging around Walking and Street Environment Add Access Issue Clear List

Suggested Solutions Cant use pass on different operators on same route Cost of Transport Add Access Issue Clear List Suggested Solutions Low frequency Lack of evening services Public Transport Add Access Issue Clear List Suggested Solutions Uncertainty about making connection Interchanges

Add Access Issue Clear List Suggested Solutions Solutions: Known Options Walking and Street Environment Problems Solution 1 Solution 2 Solution 3 Pavements not suitable for buggies Widen footways Ban pavement parking and enforce and wheelchairs (too narrow or pavement parking) Cars drive too quickly on Introduce physical speed reduction Use of regulations: 20 mph speed residential streets measures: speed humps, chicanes limits, give way at junctions, park

on alternate sides of street Unsafe crossing places at Provide informal crossing facilities: Provide zebra, pelican or puffin junctions refuges, speed tables crossings Designate priority walking routes, with better physical conditions, maintenance and enforcement Enforcement of speed limits Unsafe crossing places at bus stops/stations Resite bus stops to safer locations Provide informal crossing facilities: Provide zebra, pelican or puffin refuges, speed tables crossings Personal security concerns poor Improve lighting levels and colour lighting

Remove potential hiding places and improve sight lines Personal security concerns groups hanging around Improve leisure facilities for young School sessions, to encourage people more responsible behaviour Provide community wardens Solutions: More Open Options Re-DEFINE types of services provided? Align more closely to customer needs Re-LOCATE points of service delivery? Become closer to customers/users Re-TIME patterns of service delivery? Align with customer timing needs Re-FRESH services? To improve quality

CO-OPERATE with other agencies? Joined-up, seamless service delivery, for better efficiency and effectiveness Distributional Impacts For different groups of people For different residential locations/public transport service patterns For different sector agencies Constraints: Older People Type of Person Older person Service Hospital Outpatients Previous Sheet N

others Cross-sector Impacts KEY: School Closure/Consolidation Better educational provision Efficiency savings Benefit to Sector Close School: Consolidate Sites Larger numbers of pupils at one site Further travel distances for some Disbenefit to Sector

Loss of after-school activities at closed site Consequences Greater risk of bullying Intimidation in surrounding streets Fewer social/ leisure activities Fewer walk or cycle More go by car Greater antisocial behaviour SECTORS: Education More go by bus/train Policing Reduced physical

exercise More traffic around school: - congestion - accidents More pupils on buses: -crowding - intimidation Health Transport Questions? Contact Professor Peter Jones Centre for Transport Studies, UCL [email protected] Tel: 020 7679 0478 www.distillate.ac.uk
