Abstract

Local authority highways committee Chairs in England are responsible for decision making in transport planning which includes impacts on health. The study sought to explore how highways committee Chairs conceptualise health or order to provide insight into its influence in their transport decision making as local government policy makers with regard to what they consider legitimate health-related issues for transport planning. The paper draws primarily on data from telephone interviews. Findings are discussed relating to perceived key issues connecting transport and health, whether they are becoming more important, and their implications for transport policy.
