From the synopsis: Transport is one of many problems affecting the state and quality of life in our towns and cities. Others such as housing, education, crime and immigration, whilst being recognised, do not seem to generate as much attention as transport. This Local Information Paper provides a perspective on the most prominent transportation issues in Huddersfield at the present time.
The paper is divided into two parts. Part 1 is concerned with the growth of transport problems in Huddersfield, especially during the 1960's showing how they reflect the more general urban transport problem ill Great Britain. Part 2 analyses the various approaches of public policy in dealing with these problems. It aims to provide an insight into policy alternatives and to show how these have been taken up in dealing with Huddersfield's particular problems. The reorganisation of local government (April 1974) was especially significant and the effects of this are discussed in the final section.
The condition of the booklet is generally ok. The covers have several scuffs and blemishes, and light wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact and all pages are intact and bound. There is foxing and yellowing along the edges of the covers and outside page leaves, and a deep crease in the top right hand corner that extends through to the inside pages throughout.
