Delivering Development Travel Plans

Deadline for applications: Friday 6 October

This course examines best practice in taking travel plans through the planning process and then implementing and monitoring them and agreeing the results.

The course is given by experienced practitioners bringing the best of published guidance, academic research and lessons learned on the job!

This one-day course is aimed at those with some or no experience of working with development travel plans.  The course focuses on the managing the implementation process and achieving successful outcomes. The course includes consideration of the full implications of the Department for Communities & Local Government publication of Planning Policy Guidance to support the National Planning Framework (NPPF).  Since the publication of the NPPF in 2012, and subsequent cancellation of a raft of extremely relevant guidance on travel planning following the 2013 Taylor Review of government planning practice guidance, some practitioners have been left wondering what status travel plans have in the planning process.  The publication of Planning Policy Guidance on travel plans and transport assessment on 6 March 2014 helped overcome this.  This course will help you understand the new guidance in the context of the current policy environment and explain how to ensure you make the most of it.

The course will cover:
