National Guidelines for Passenger Transport and Land Use Planning Integration

Estimates & Committees
Scott Ludlam 30 Oct 2010

Question No.: ISTP 42
Division/Agency: Infrastructure and Surface Transport Policy

Senator Ludlam asked:

What is the schedule for adoption of the National Guidelines for Passenger Transport and Land use Planning Integration within State Departments and the Commonwealth Departments of Transport, Planning?

Answer:

The National Guidelines for Passenger Transport and Land Use Planning Integration are guidelines for national best practice. Each jurisdiction is responsible for their implementation as appropriate. The Guidelines were endorsed by the Australian Transport Council (ATC) in April 2010 and were referred to the Local Government and Planning Ministers' Council (LGPMC) for counter endorsement at its September 2010 meeting.

Should the Guidelines be endorsed by LGPMC in September 2010, they will be available for use by jurisdictions from that time. The Guidelines will be published as an addendum to ATC's National Guidelines for Transport Systems Management in Australia.

Senator Ludlam asked:

Will these Guidelines be superseded by the upcoming COAG agreement on Capital City Strategies?

Answer:

No.
