This issue of Current Topics includes over 65 abstracts of reports, conference papers, books and journal articles which focus on the relationship between land use and transport, with a special emphasis on policy and planning issues. Abstracts are included on studies on sustainable transport policy, ways of preventing urban sprawl, land use effects on travel behaviour, modelling the interaction between urban land use and transport, accessibility studies, planning mixed use developments to reduce the need to travel, and land use planning for pedestrians and public transport. These items have been selected from the material added to the Transport Research Laboratory's Library Database between 2006 and 2009. Much of the relevant English language published literature from the UK, USA, Australia and Europe is included; some of the non-UK literature is included courtesy of the OECD International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) database.
