Travel Plans

A Travel Plan is a requirement of a development consent to demonstrate travel by means other than the private car, usually set against defined targets. The Plan usually forms a planning condition or obligation of a planning consent. Once the Travel Plan requirement is discharged, then the Travel Plan would be Implemented.

Mayer Brown operate a number of Travel Plans. These range from smaller developments or ones well located by non-car means where the Travel Plan requirement is as straightforward as the provision of information for users, through to large scale schemes where there is a requirement for new public transport services and extensive monitoring.

Public Transport Contracts

Our team assist in negotiating contracts with public transport operators to provide services within a development in accordance with a S106 Obligation or Travel Plan requirement. This also Includes the provision of free travel if required.

We have assisted in the launch of a number of bus services, reaching back to 2002 where the services continue on a commercial basis. Recent services include the 57 Bus Service in Chelmsford for the development at Beaulieu launched In April 2017. This is now achieving a 30% bus modal share in the early peak period. Other services include the 16 Bus Service at the St Luke's Park development in Runwell and the MyLocal Flyer Service at Oaklands Hamlet, a commuter bus service taking residents of the development direct to the local station.
