Travel planning for schools, businesses and communities

A travel plans are designed to encourage and enable travel choices that are safe, healthy and sustainable, including:

  • cycling
  • wheeling
  • public transport
  • car sharing
  • electric vehicles

  • identifying any travel issues that need to be addressed
  • providing details about how people travel to the site
  • setting targets to reduce single car occupancy journeys
  • explaining how targets will be monitored
