Generating Strategic OptionsandExploring Distributional Impacts

Final workshop of the DISTILLATE programme

  • To develop option generation methods
    • To enhance the range, innovation and quality of options
    • For strategies and schemes
konsult generating packages of measures
KonSULT: Generating Packages of Measures
  • KonSULT is a web based knowledgebase developed at the University of Leeds

  • Assesses potential contribution of over 40 transport and land use policy instruments, to achieving a range of objectives/ addressing problems
  • Uses both a first principles assessment and review of case studies
  • Provides information about previous applications of selected instruments
konsult developing option generation component
KonSULT Developing Option Generation Component
  • The option generation tool has been developed to allow users to interrogate the information within the KonSULT database and develop packages of policy instruments
  • Users define their local circumstances and requirements, and the software then scores instruments in terms of their suitability – in two steps:
Step 1

Uses information within KonSULT to assess each policy instrument, based on the criteria supplied by the user. Scores and then ranks each one. Accessible at:

Step 2

Takes data from Step 1 and adds information on synergy or barriers to create potential packages of pairs of instruments.

Add on available from

step 2 packages
Step 2 (Packages)
  • .xls spreadsheet model
  • Uses output from step 1
  • Individual can select / unselect the indicators to be included in packages
  • It creates a ranking of pairs of indicators using the combined score of the two policy instruments from step 1 and then modifies this score using either the synergy or barrier matrices
accessibility planning options
Accessibility Planning Options

Development of several techniques:

  • To assist with problem diagnosis as well as option identification
  • Some designed for use with local residents
  • Others designed for application by sector professionals
  • Includes consideration of distributional impacts
solutions more open options
Solutions: More Open Options
  • Re-DEFINE types of services provided?
    • Align more closely to customer needs
  • Re-LOCATE points of service delivery?
    • Become closer to customers/users
  • Re-TIME patterns of service delivery?
    • Align with customer timing needs
  • Re-FRESH services?
    • To improve quality
  • CO-OPERATE with other agencies?
    • ‘Joined-up’, seamless service delivery, for better efficiency and effectiveness
distributional impacts
Distributional Impacts
  • For different groups of people
  • For different residential locations/public transport service patterns
  • For different sector agencies
distributional impacts agencies
Distributional Impacts: Agencies
  • Sectors work to tightly drawn targets, or profit seeking criteria
  • Efficiency savings are sometimes based on externalising internal costs
  • So, changes in service delivery patterns in one sector can have (negative) impacts on others
