Travel Choice encourages people to explore different ways of travelling around their towns.
Travel Choice brings benefits to everyone, from jobseekers and school leavers to workplaces and commuters.
Nottinghamshire County Council successfully secured funding from the Department for Transport's Access Fund to undertake travel planning in Mansfield, Newark, West Bridgford and Daybrook.
In Mansfield and Newark funding has been secured to offer travel planning to jobseekers, school leavers, residents and businesses. In West Bridgford and Daybrook funding has been secured to offer travel planning to residents.
Recent surveys with Nottinghamshire residents and local businesses show that addressing local journey time delay is the top transport priority. Nottinghamshire County Council has developed a strategy to address it, including:
A team of Travel Choice advisors will provide jobseekers, school leavers, residents and businesses in Mansfield and Newark with personalised travel planning advice to support the planned housing and employment growth and the recent/planned Local Growth Fund infrastructure improvements in these areas; as well as addressing journey time delay.
Personalised Travel Planning (PTP) will be offered to residents in Daybrook during 2019 following the PTP delivered in West Bridgford during 2018. The PTP is being delivered to help support the planned housing and employment growth and the recent/planned Local Growth Fund infrastructure improvements; as well as helping to address road traffic related air quality issues in these two areas.
The County Council is working with the local district councils to help improve air quality for local residents in these two areas. Further information on the actions being delivered to help address local air quality issues in Daybrook and West Bridgford can be found in the ‘Air Quality Annual Status Report’ on the Gedling Borough Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council websites respectively.
The PTP being delivered in Daybrook and West Bridgford is being funded through the Nottingham and Derby Access Fund programme which has secured £2.735 million from the Department of Transport for sustainable travel initiatives during the period 2017/18 to 2019/20.
