Research

Our project is divided into seven work packages (WP)


WP1

Co-production and policy review to develop built environment measures and scenarios for England and Australia

WP Leads
Audrey de Nazelle, James Woodcock, Billie Giles-Corti, Lucy Gunn, Belen Zapata-Diomedi, Liton Kamruzzaman, Rohit Sharma

Outputs
Quantitative and qualitative policy and research will be undertaken to inform the development of policy-relevant built environment measures in WP2 and scenarios that will inform WP7. 

WP2

Developing spatial measures of the built environment for England

WP Leads
Liton Kamruzzaman, Billie Giles- Corti, Jenna Panter, Anna Goodman, Lucy Gunn, SM Labib

Outputs
A database of policy-relevant built environment measures for urban postcodes for 11 city regions in England. 


WP3

Linking built environment measures to transport behaviours for England

WP Leads
Lucy Gunn, Gavin Turrell, Billie Giles-Corti, Anna Goodman, Jenna Panter, Liton Kamruzzaman, Tayebeh Saghapour

Outputs
Evidence to inform the matching process for the English synthetic population (WP4) and to derive built environment scenarios (WP7). 

WP4

Agent based travel demand modelling for England incorporating built environment characteristics

WP Leads
Dhirendra Singh, Alan Both, Anna Goodman, Lucy Gunn, Corin Staves, Aruna Sivakumar 

Outputs
A revised synthetic population for the English city regions.


WP5

Upgrading England exposures & health impact model based on improved spatial and travel resolution

WP Leads
James Woodcock (overall lead, physical activity & traffic injuries), Anna Goodman (overall lead & physical activity), Haneen Khreis (air pollution), Audrey de Nazelle (air pollution), John Gulliver (noise), Ali Abbas (data science), Belen Zapata-Diomedi (health modelling)

Outputs
Improved estimates for impacts in England that will inform transport analysis guidance (see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/transport-analysis-guidance-webtag). 

WP6

Integrating health exposures and outcomes into the Melbourne model

WP Leads
James Woodcock (overall lead, physical activity & injuries), Belen Zapata-Diomedi (overall lead and health modelling), Audrey de Nazelle (air pollution), Luke Knibbs (air pollution), John Gulliver (noise), Alan Both (data science) 

Outputs
WP7 will integrate the exposure models with the PMSLT to be used in WP7 to assess the health implication of built environment interventions for Melbourne. 


WP7

Developing and running scenarios and producing results for England and Melbourne

WP Leads
James Woodcock, Anna Goodman, Audrey de Nazelle, Lucy Gunn, Belen Zapata-Diomedi, Billie Giles-Corti

Outputs
In addition to academic papers, policy briefs and other publications will be developed to inform policymakers of the findings in a user-friendly way.
