Residential Travel Plans

A residential travel plan is a package of measures designed to reduce the number of car journeys from residential developments through supporting sustainable modes of transport.

How can a Travel Plan benefit residents?

  • Reduce the cost of travel
  • Provide the opportunity to build healthy exercise into daily life
  • Reduce the average time of journeys
  • Reduced carbon footprint
  • Attracts new residents by offering a wider range of transport benefits and travel choices
  • Enables higher densities of housing development, and therefore an increased profit margin
  • Potentially reducing the need for expenditure on new transport infrastructure
  • Raise awareness of the consequences of travel choices and highlight the benefits of choosing suitable alternatives
  • Minimise the impact of travel on the environment, improve the local air quality and reduce harmful emissions
