Travel Planning is aimed at maximising the use of sustainable travel modes, and in doing so minimising the levels of car trips generated by a new development. The submission of a travel plan report is now required in support of most planning applications that are likely to result in the generation of a significant number of trips.
Importantly, travel plans set out a series of measures which a developer signs up to deliver over a period of time, often beyond the occupation of a site. A travel plan report is therefore not something that sits on a shelf and the commitments made should be carefully considered to avoid unnecessary ongoing costs and commitments.
TPS are recognised as a leader within the travel plan industry. Not only do we prepare travel plans at the application stage, we also work on behalf of developers to fulfill commitments made within the submitted report. In doing so we are able to ensure developers benefit from the most appropriate advice and assistance, easing the process and minimising associated costs.
