Travel Plans

A Travel Plan is a package of measures tailored to the needs of individual sites and aimed at reducing reliance on the car and promoting more sustainable travel choices, such as walking, cycling and using public transport.

Travel Plans can help reduce the impact of travel on the environment; they also make good business sense. They can cut congestion around a site and save money on business travel. They can help to attract staff to sites which would otherwise be difficult to access and they can also help to make your workforce healthier.

The council is developing Travel Plans for each of its major offices and is also working with the Travel Plan Co-ordinators employed by Sewta to encourage businesses and schools within the county borough to develop their own.

To assist the preparation of Travel Plans required as part of new developments, the council has prepared a Travel Plan Guide for Developers. The guide provides advice on when a Travel Plan is required and how it should developed and monitored to ensure it is effective.
