Our internal Research and Innovation programme exists to empower staff to ask demanding questions about what we do and how we do it, and to invest time and energy in developing new methods and answers. We host meetings every two weeks for people to bring ideas and sound them out with colleagues. Everyone is encouraged to be original, creative or just plain eccentric at this stage: we believe that even the strangest of ideas can lead to fresh ways of doing things.

Born and educated in the US, Laura Shoaf now holds one of the UK’s top transport jobs, Managing Director of Transport for West Midlands (TfWM). We asked her whether the new transport agenda there could offer any lessons for planners in North America.

In the last five to ten years, the UK has seen a major shift in the way it approaches transport planning. Rather than designing and delivering transit systems to achieve transport outcomes, planners are now addressing wider social, environmental and economic issues.

London has seen rapid change over the past 25 years, reversing decades of decline through a combination of globalisation and adopting ambitious strategies to help unlock growth, embrace diversity and nurture talent. The devolution of powers to London through the creation of the Mayor for London and the London Assembly has been a catalyst in transforming the city. London’s Mayors have been at the centre of this change, using its relatively limited powers to showcase what can be done.

Others have cut them back, because they are not profitable or not supported by a social, economic or environmental case.
