Travel Plans are an important tool used for delivering sustainable access to a new development. A Travel Plan can be developed for any type of site, land use or business, such as a residential development, workplace, school or supermarket. It is a package of measures aimed at facilitating and promoting the use of sustainable modes of travel amongst a target audience.
By submitting a Travel Plan in support of a planning application, the applicant is signing themselves (or the end user) up to deliver on the commitments made, often secured through a S106 obligation or planning condition. This process places a legal requirement upon the applicant to implement the range of measures identified within the Travel Plan, and can often be linked to the delivery of specific measures such as public transport services, public transport ticketing or bike purchase offers.
