Currently, emissions from transport represent a quarter of Scotland’s total. While the Scottish Government has identified a number of transport policies, which would contribute to Scotland’s ability to meet its targets, action to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transport has been limited, poorly integrated with other areas of policy, and focused on narrow programmes. Drawing on best practice from cities across the North Sea Region, this paper considers how public engagement can be utilised within the development of holistic low carbon urban development.
