FARMING CONSIDERATIONS IN HIGHWAY ASSESSMENT

Farming is primarily an economic activity; hence the agricultural input to the highway planning framework ought to be given in financial terms. Recognition of the institutional structuring of farm land into individual holdings enables such a predictive financial impact model to be devised. The aggregation of the predicted loss of income upon farm units for a proposed scheme will give the national agricultural resource loss consequent upon the construction of that scheme. The authors demonstrate the model they have developed to carry out this task. This is based upon Dr Hearne's doctoral thesis "the impact of major new roads upon agriculture: economic and procedural aspects." (TRRL)
