A Workplace Travel Plan can be a condition of receiving your planning permission from the council. This will be set out as a lost of conditions that you must discharge, usually before opening of the site.

A Workplace Travel Plan is given a life cycle by the council which is typically set at 5 years. For each of these years you will need to monitor your staff travel choices and show how you are meeting sustainable travel targets set for you.

The following services are split into three categories:

Services that will discharge your planning condition to enable the opening of your site;

Education and information services that can help you to meet your targets; and

Annual monitoring services and tasks that take action to meet your targets and satisfy the life cycle of your planning condition.
