University Travel Plans

Research has shown that active Travel Plans that include relevant initiatives, actions and effective parking management are more successful in achieving changes in reducing single car occupancy. Our plans supports the University commitments to improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions and improve our local environment for our staff, students and local communities. Travel Plans are also used to support planning applications alongside our Transport Statements. 

University Transport Statements

A Transport Statement is a simplified Transport Assessment and has been written for each new development at the University. They assess the movement and travel to establish if there are issues arising in developments and if there are any decide on how to overcome these. Each one has been written to support our campus Travel Plans and planning applications or Breeam assessment.
