TPS is currently appointed to act as Travel Plan Coordinator at in excess of 70 residential sites, for the likes of Persimmon, Taylor Wimpey, Story Homes, David Wilson Homes, Avant Homes, Linden Homes and Stonebridge Homes.
The role involves taking on responsibility for delivery of all aspects of the approved Travel Plan for a particular site. This includes preparing developer-branded travel information websites and travel guides (and liaising with the sales team to ensure these are provided to residents), providing a personalised journey planning service and ensuring that all monitoring requirements are complied with.
Many Travel Plan actions in a residential context are front-loaded (to ensure they are in place ahead of first occupation) and we recognise that there is a need, therefore, to engage with residents post occupation, if the Travel Plan is to have an impact in the longer term.
Recently we have prepared residential newsletters across a large number of our sites, as a means to achieve this. The benefits speak for themselves, for example in West Yorkshire where residential Metrocards are typically on offer to residents at new developments, we have seen an upsurge in requests for tickets following the newsletters (including an article on the Metrocard offer) being sent to residents.
