Results

After providing sustainable travel information to residents, and training the on-site sales staff, a survey of residents travel habits was undertaken. This involved travelling door-to-door, asking residents how they undertaken regular journeys, and why they travel as they do. It is also important to gain an insight into residents concerns, and as such, respondents were encouraged to identify any issues they thought were in need of improvement, in terms of sustainable travel.

It was found that residents at Hanborough Park travelled sustainably for a large amount of recurring trips, partly due to the proximity of Hanborough Railway Station.
