What does Green Book review mean for transport planning/projects?

Last November, HM Treasury reported findings from its review of the Green Book. The review was announced as part of the March 2020 Budget and was initiated in response to concerns that the Government’s appraisal guidance may mitigate against investment in poorer parts of the UK and undermine the Government’s ambition to ‘level up’.

The Green Book provides overarching guidance on how to appraise policies, programmes and projects. Individual Government departments, including the Department for Transport (DfT), have their own supplementary appraisal guidance, including guidance on business case preparation which sets out how the Green Book should be applied to particular sectors.  

The findings of the review are wide-ranging and are likely to lead to significant changes in the way that transport projects are generated, developed and appraised.
