About the Woodside Travel Plan

A Travel Plan is in place for Woodside, which helps you understand your options for making journeys to and from home.

We hope that you will have a look through the information and consider how you could fit sustainable travel into your daily routine. This can save you money, help squeeze exercise into your day, improve your health, limit your impact on the environment and on air quality, help you avoid traffic jams and help you learn more about your neighbourhood.

Surveys

Every so often surveys will be carried out to see how residents are travelling. This will help the Travel Plan Coordinator decide if everything is in place to support you to make fewer car journeys, or whether there is more to be done. The surveys may be completed in a number of different ways, such as counting how many cars and people are leaving the site during the day, an online form or on paper sent to your address.

Viewing the Travel Plan

A Travel Plan is a package of measures aimed at promoting the use of other modes of transport instead of the car. It involves the development of a set of mechanisms, initiatives and targets that together can reduce the impact of travel and transport on the environment, whilst also achieving a number of other benefits for residents, such as saving money and improving health and well-being.
