This paper puts forward the case for small settlements as opposed to larger ones when considering the reduction of traffic demand. The suggestion is illustrated by the case of 'Wenlock', a new settlement proposed 12km south of York city centre. Details are given of the Transport Assessement Methodology. Traffic surveys were carried out in Donnington, a village nearby considered to be similar to the new 'Wenlock' development. From data on the trips generated and the facilities available it is estimated that 40% were internal movements. The author considers that this might increase with the size of the settlement and suggests more research is needed on the actual size. For the covering abstract see IRRD 876474.
