      The RAE have produced a 44 page glossy brochure titled "Transport 2050: The
      route to sustainable wealth creation"

      They strongly advocate cleaner vehicles and road pricing but on page 35,
      they comment, under the heading:

      "Land Use

      Land-use policy interventions can influence the length and mode of journeys,
      although they are unlikely to affect the number of journeys. These policy
      interventions include increased housing density, mixed development of
      housing and commercial premises, development in conjunction with public
      transport, developments in larger conurbations and closer to city and
      district centres, redevelopment of brownfield sites, reductions in parking
      provision and controls on the way in which new developments are used.

      In principle land-use taxes could reinforce any of these interventions,
      though there is little experience of their use".

      I think this is the first time that The RAE have ever mentioned the
      possibility of Land Taxation assisting transport.
