Travel Plan - Park Road Pools & Fitness
The Travel Plan typically focuses on day-to-day journeys made by residents, staff and visitors to a particular site and is a tool that aims to provide a package of measures to reduce the number of journeys carried out by car and to encourage a greater use of active modes such as cycling and walking. This enables an organisation to manage and deliver its sustainable transport objectives through positive action.
The travel plan strategy sets out a site audit of available transport facilities, the objectives, targets and indicators for the travel plan, along with the actions and measures that need to be taken. Travel Plans are site and development specific and should be viewed as a 'living document', capable of being updated to suit changing travel patterns indicated by monitoring results and of being maintained long after the occupation of the development.

- Lessening traffic generation and its detrimental impacts;
- Reducing carbon emissions and climate impacts;
- Creating accessible, connected, inclusive communities;
