Brief

Issues & Solutions

The site has no parking provision on site and Abbey Road is a Permit Holder Only area. To solve the restrictions of the site a Sustainable Travel Information Packs was produced to assist residents to establish new travel habits and routines from the beginning in their new homes.

The packs were prepared adhering to the highway authority’s Travel Plan guidance and included information on:

  • Reducing the need to travel;
  • Walking;
  • Cycling;
  • Bus use;
  • Train use; and
  • Other initiatives such as car clubs, lift share, taxis etc.

The packs were informed by a detailed site visit of the local area and maps developed by Cotswold Transport Planning of the local services and amenities.

Results
