Detail

WebTAG currently has no guidelines for monetising the benefits of pedestrianisation or townscape improvements but these can make up a significant part of a major scheme business case.

This report attempts to address this gap but DfT believes the values are not robust or generalised enough for direct application in the appraisal process, and therefore have not been included in WebTAG. Local authorities may, however, choose to apply the method outlined for use on a case by case basis.
