Client: Leeds Trinity University

TPS have a long standing relationship with Leeds Trinity University and have supported them for a number of years to develop, deliver and monitor the impact of their Integrated Transport Strategy.

Originally appointed to address a planning requirement to develop a travel plan strategy for a specific development on campus, TPS recommended the development of an organisation wide strategy to manage car parking demand, promote sustainable travel choices and to illustrate to the local council an ongoing commitment to both.  Whilst the University does not benefit from being in an urban centre, and has limited public transport options, the challenge was to develop initiatives that could deliver shift from reliance on the private car that had the potential to be viable in the long term.

To date the strategy has delivered a revised and enhanced car park management strategy (including designated car share spaces), a free shuttle service to link the campus to the train station, a range of cycling measures and an ongoing strategy to monitor the impact of the strategy, the work of the ITS has been recognised as a local example of best practice.  Critically the demand for car parking has decreased allowing the University to meet ambitious targets for expansion without resulting in car parking spilling onto the local highway network to the detriment of the relationship with the local community.

In recent months TPS have worked with the University to update the strategy as part of a planning application for additional residential development on site and the revised strategy was formally approved by Leeds City Council in February 2015.
