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.
