Cross Farm is a collection of 31 dwellings located on the edge of Wedmore in Somerset. The development is supported by a Travel Plan and we were appointed by Acorn Property Group as the Travel Plan Coordinator.
As Travel Plan Coordinator, we are responsible for implementing the Travel Plan and encouraging mode shift towards more sustainable modes of travel.
Despite its rural location, Wedmore village has a variety of facilities and amenities that residents of Cross Farm may require on a daily basis. As such, we will focus on implementing measures that encourage walking and cycling.
Residents were initially introduced to the Travel Plan and sustainable travel opportunities available to them via an online Travel Information Pack provided on occupation. A regular newsletter will be issued to residents to raise awareness of the Travel Plan and promote walking, cycling and local public transport.
A key part of Travel Plan Coordinating is the ongoing monitoring of travel behaviour. We will undertake monitoring of Cross Farm resident travel behaviour over a five year period. Following each travel survey, results will be summarised in a Monitoring Report and uploaded on Somerset County Councils iOnTRAVEL website.
The Travel Plan aims to achieve a ten percent reduction in single occupancy vehicle mode share over a five year period.
