Effects of capacity constraints on population and employment distribution

Nick Lomax

The report is intended to provide an overview of data and methods produced in accordance with the following deliverables under two phases of the project:

Phase 1:

  • Developing a baseline projection for population and employment in UK cities and other places, based on ONS sub-national population projections.
  • Sensitivity testing of ONS projections to consider outcomes under different assumptions about future growth patterns.Phase 2:
  • Developing alternative scenarios for population and employment growth in cities reflecting transport infrastructure constraints.
  • Developing alternative scenarios for population and employment growth in cities reflecting housing constraints, and reflecting the combined effect of transport and housing constraints.
