What has the Travel plan achieved?

  • The number of residents choosing to walk and/or take the bus as their primary mode of transport has increased and are projected to continue increasing.
  • There has been an increase in residents travelling to and from Oakwood Park by bicycle since the baseline survey, this would suggest that the cycling infrastructure within the local area and the new cycle route into Norwich has been successful.
  • Resident’s of Oakwood Park’s, car-sharing exceeds that of Census Data provided by ‘Method to Travel of Work – Resident Population for South Norfolk 007C’.
  • As of September 2021, we have achieved targets set for dwellings claiming their welcome vouchers. 56% of residents chose the bus travel vouchers opposed to the Wiggle voucher, for active travel. The large volume of bus tickets being claimed contributes towards meeting the objective to reduce the traffic generated by the development, lowering levels of car trips.
