Let's not miss this opportunity to change

land use & transport planning

ANSA Digital is all about reimagining how we deliver - be it a dataset or a model, a project or programme, or an entire planning service. 

With all the upheaval we're going through we have a real chance to reset and do what is right and not just take the easiest path or worst of all avoid change to protect the past.

With this new digital era we can be more efficient, more consistent, more robust and make fairer decisions for everyone.

I'm Richard Bradley.  I'm full of energy, ideas and experiences and I really believe in this mission.  I've spent my life reimagining and disrupting, and continually trying to improve.  I know how we can do this and I know we can make it work. 

Let's start a conversation about how we improve.  Let's start a conversation about how we refocus on benefits for all and value opportunity higher than risk.  Let's together reimagine how we build plans and make the case for a more sustainable and inclusive future economy. 

Let's together transform and optimise digital planning services to better handle change and explore uncertainty.  Let's explore how automation and collaboration with new data, modelling, appraisal and computer systems can give us so much more.  Let's together try to meet shorter term needs as part of a route-map to introduce future mobility.

Transport planning should now only be about seeing the big picture

  • Our needs are rapidly evolving

  • We have to think bigger than just our own needs

  • Keep aligned to the mission

  • Automation & collaboration will change everything

Is now the time to reimagine planning services?

  • Planning more important than plans

  • We now have the experience

  • We can now achieve consistency at all levels of government

  • Automation & collaboration will change everything

Refresh your plans &

make them more dynamic

To help map out the reimagining of planning services we've organised the various plans required to support investment and policy decisions into the Future Mobility Playbook.

The Playbook combines many years of experience and captures the last three years of the delivery of the Analytical Framework at Transport for the North, as well as contributions from many other planning activities.

Some of your plans will be up-to-date and the Future Mobility Playbook can provide a quick way to refresh and strengthen them against various emerging data, tools and techniques.  Some plans might need a deeper look or a complete overhaul to maximise all the benefits that are available and to meet emerging requirements.
