Descripción
There has been a growth of interest in the concept of accessibility in recent decades, with many accessibility studies published in the academic press discussing how to measure accessibility, the implementation of the concept of accessibility in urban planning and transport and the contribution such decision support tools might have. This interest in accessibility, more recently, has broadened such that there is a multitude of approaches used in the consideration of the development of accessibility instruments (or tools) and the contribution they could make to urban planning practice to inform land use and transport decision-making. This report focuses on these new approaches to accessibility modelling and aims to help practitioners choose the most appropriate accessibility instrument based on the urban management problem. This chapter, however, seeks to provide a benchmark to these later instruments by categorising the ?first wave? of accessibility instruments developed using the descriptions of these instruments in the academic press. This documentary review is limited to the accessibility-based planning instruments in the English language academic press and seeks to explain early conceptualisations of accessibility and how the concept is measured and incorporated in the instrument.
