Why produce a Travel Plan?

A Travel Plan that is robust and can demonstrate a positive commitment to reducing the impact of the development will help you to obtain planning permission more easily (however, it must be noted that a good travel plan will never make an unsustainable site sustainable).  In fact, Travel Plans are now a requirement for all major developments and certain smaller planning applications.

Producing a Travel Plan from the outset can have a number of benefits for the development, business and individuals.

Benefits to the business

Benefits to employees

Benefits to the environment and the local community
