The paper starts with the description of the original planning proposals for Irvine New Town and the need, because of sub-regional developments and additional information, to revise the plan and the opportunity taken by the development corporation officials to integrate land use and transportation in conjunction with the public transport operators. Intrinsically linked with the planning and construction of the new town is the financing method for the infrastructure provision and the shortcomings of this are highlighted and suggestions made as to how this might be improved following local government reorganisation. The paper was one of four presented at a conference in Edinburgh in January 1975. Arranged by the Scottish Association for Public Transport, and entitled "Public Transport and the New Regional Authorities", the conference was held against a background of local government reorganisation in Scotland which took place in May 1975. /Author/ /TRRL/
