With an ever increasing focus on sustainable development our Travel Planning team keep up to date with local Travel Planning policies to ensure your Travel Plan is compliant and deliverable.

Our services

We have written Framework and Full Travel Plans to support planning applications, discharge conditions or to ensure developers meet their Section 106 obligations. Our Travel Plans are tailored to each site with the coordination approach tailored to each client.

Our team also currently coordinate Travel Plans for over 14,000 homes, with each project ranging from 3 to 15 years. Travel Plan Coordination involves providing residents or employees the information they need to make an informed decision about the way they currently travel and can provide incentives and motivation to use more sustainable modes of transport.

With the attention focused on sustainable development, we also assist with meeting the world’s leading sustainability assessment: ‘BREEAM’ criteria through our Travel Plans. With more council’s requesting development meets this standard, our Travel Plans help ensure valuable credits are secured.

Travel Planning

Travel Plans are becoming increasingly important with every planning application, be it residential, office, industrial or educational, as councils look for ways to ensure development is sustainable and the impact on the local road network can be kept to a minimum.

Acting as a package of measures designed to encourage sustainable travel behaviour, Travel Plans can be valuable to prove that your site would not result in a ‘severe’ traffic impact or could support lower parking provision or even car-free development.

Our team

With many staff members entering the travel planning world with a sustainability background we are well placed to assist with writing and coordinating Travel Plans.

Our team has experience in writing and coordinating travels plans across a variety of land use sectors, as well as local authority experience of reviewing, monitoring and implementing residential, education and workplace Travel Plans.

Our feedback

Our feedback

We have found Paul Basham Associates to be a practise operating with the highest of disciplines and standards, ensuring that all aspects of liaison through the planning process to the delivery of the scheme result in minimal issues encountered by us as developers. The commercial understanding of this process has been key to the successful delivery of all schemes to date in which they have been involved.
