Our Travel Plan monitoring of Oakwood Park will be undertaken soon. There is nothing you need to do as a resident apart from carry on with your normal day to day activities! Our survey will involve recording all movements in and out of the development and movements along footpaths within the development. Therefore, you may notice some people located around Oakwood Park. In addition to this, you may notice some cameras located around. These recordings are not used for any other purpose other than the travel habits and are not distributed to third parties – all information recorded is encrypted and stored securely. Furthermore, data is deleted within six-months of the survey.
Nearly all new large housing developments require a Travel Plan. For Oakwood Park, Smarter Travel Ltd is taking on the role of Travel Plan Coordinator on behalf of Charles Church. The current plan can be viewed and downloaded here and covers accessibility of the development, local cycling and walking routes, the public transport network and local amenities. Alongside this, you can view the targets and measures for Oakwood Park which are likely to be monitored until 2022. The Travel Plan will be updated annually and the results of each survey will be published here for you to view.
