The scope of the research described was to determine and demonstrate the air pollution aspects of urban and transportation planning and to encourage the inclusion of air quality control considerations in the planning process. The need for the study is based on the fact that urban planning decisions, which have profound effects on ambient air quality, are often made without proper consideration of their air pollution consequences. The recommendations include a summary of the basic work items for the five-year program of research and support activities. The contribution that urban and transportation planning can make to the improvement of air quality was developed. The inter-relationships between air pollution, land use, and transportation systems are described, based on an intensive state-of-the-art review. The role of urban and transportation planning in air quality control is discussed in the following contexts: land development and density patterns; spatial arrangement of buildings and site activities; planning of transportation systems; design and construction practices; and operation of buildings and transportation facilities.
