Transport, land use and the environment are interrelated. Changes in one will, in time, impact the other. The need to understand this relationship is increasing in importance as environmental problems increase and cities change. Further, the complexity of the interaction and the range of policy options that can be used to refine it require an understanding of the time scale and sensitivity of responses to policy changes. Understanding the interaction requires study and education. The study reported here aims to assist in the education process through the development of the land use, transport and environment interaction package: LAND (Location of Activities and Network Development).
