Residential Travel Plans

Residential travel plans will take a different form to those for standard employment sites and are likely to achieve the greatest impacts in larger scale development (i.e. over 100 dwellings) although a range of measures will still be required for smaller scale developments.  The main objectives of a residential travel plan are to:

  • address residents' need for access to a full range of facilities and activities

  • reduce the traffic generated by the development

  • encourage good design principles and support the local community

The inclusion of travel planning principles at an early stage can also provide an opportunity to make a fundamental shift towards the provision of streets for people and social activity rather than purely a means of car access to properties.
