Thesis
Williams, D. Social practice theory and sustainable mobility: An analysis of the English local transport planning as a system of provision. (Thesis). University of the West of England

The UK Government is committed to reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 80% from 1990 levels by 2050. Reducing emissions from motorised transport and changing travel behaviour of people wishing to travel are two possible means of achieving this....
