Residential travel plans

Contents


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.

Residents

The benefits:

  • reduce the cost of travel
  • provide the opportunity to build healthy exercise into daily life
  • reduce the average time of journeys
  • reduced carbon footprint

Developers

The benefits:

  • 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

Community and environment

The benefits:

  • 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
