Abstract

The purpose of this project was two fold. One aim was to develop and test methods that local authorities might adopt in assessing and thinking about socio-spatial inclusion/exclusion in anticipation of the introduction and impact of road user charging or work place parking levies. Given concern that such measures might have a disproportionate impact on those already disadvantaged in socio-spatial terms, how might the specifically spatial aspects of social exclusion be defined, measured and monitored? And how might the impact of congestion charging schemes be assessed in these terms? A second aim was to draw in and develop recent work on the connections between mobility and social exclusion in order to enrich analysis of the relation between different kinds of socio-spatial access and forms of social exclusion. By socio-spatial we refer to those forms of inclusion/exclusion that are specifically related to access and mobility.
