Letter by our Hon President Rob Marris MP to the then Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown on the appraisal methods for transport schemes.
This method ensures e.g. that a sustainable transport scheme is assessed on how much fuel duty will be lost or places a higher higher value on motorists saving 10 seconds each on a bypass than people riding and walking on local trips.
It even places a monetary value on something as priceless as a bluebell wood. It's a scandalous piece of background civil service working.
The letter was passed from the Exchequer to the DfT and Rob is still waiting for an answer.
CTC are working on a consultation response on NATA appraisals in 2008.
