What is a travel plan for?
A travel plan for your workplace can revolutionise how your staff travel to and from work. It’s a long-term strategy for reducing traffic originating from a place of business, particularly single-occupancy car journeys.
A well-considered travel plan, put together by experts, can make all the difference in encouraging your staff to use public transport, car-share with their colleagues, cycle and walk.
Why do I need one
A bespoke travel plan can:
Ensure your site meets relevant planning conditions and obligations, and that if you’re developing, you get the consent you need to start work.
Ensure a new business location is not a burden on the local highway network.
Improve staff health and wellbeing, by encouraging walking, cycling, car-sharing, and more sustainable modes of transport.
Improve accessibility and staff safety on their commute.
Reduce congestion and improve air quality by reducing car usage, leading to a cleaner, greener workplace and surrounding area.
We have the insight, experience and working relationships to take on your travel plan, delivering an in-depth strategy to reduce traffic, support alternative forms of transport, and reduce single-occupancy car journeys.
Your bespoke plan will identify predicted traffic volumes and recommend a combination of measures to maximise and encourage public transport use, car-sharing, cycling and walking to and from your workplace.
From our unique position, based within the County Council, we can work closely with planning teams, building partnerships to meet access needs between businesses and local communities, transport operators and staff.
