The example from Stockholm…

A short piece today from the International Railway Journal highlighted to me how easy it could be to plan for the future in a cross-sector way, if we could just focus our minds on how we want to shape our places.

The piece is here: http://www.railjournal.com/index.php/metros/stockholm-unveils-metro-expansion-plan.html?channel=525 

In planning for a needed 78,000 new homes, Stockholm is planning and extending its metro network to ensure public transport is prepared for this growth…

It’s not rocket science is it?  Locally funded through congestion charging; connecting transport, planning and housing strategy…

So how do we pull our funding and policy-making powers together with funding and devolved to the relevant places?  Well, that would be the politics then.
