What has the Travel Plan achieved?

  • General vehicle trip rates are lower: Vehicular trip rates identified from the manual survey are lower in the AM & PM peak hours in 2021 compared to that estimated in the TA prepared for the original planning application.
  • Over a quarter of residents participating in the Kett’s Meadow & Heather Gardens travel survey highlighted walking as their primary mode of transport.
  • 106 dwellings have claimed their welcome vouchers, with a large portion choosing to redeem their Wiggle voucher. This is a positive footstep in promoting active lifestyles for residents.
