It is important to Linden Homes that you settle in well to Saffron Walden and the surrounding areas. We hope you find this information useful and on behalf of Linden Homes, thank you for selecting Saffron View as the place you will call home.

Before exploring the rest of the information, don’t forget to;

1. Complete the Travel Survey
Complete the short online Travel Survey to receive your free sustainable travel vouchers (bus tickets or active travel vouchers and only one per household). You can find full information on what is available to you in your Travel Information Pack which you would have received when you moved into your new home. You can also find full terms and conditions for the sustainable travel vouchers here.
2. Make A Change
Start practising more sustainable travel today! Take one regular journey under 5km and try walking or cycling it instead to see what the difference is. You can find further information over on our Saffron View Walking and Cycling pages about what amenities are local to you and within walking and cycling distances.
3. Investigate Cyclescheme
Find out if your employer is a member of Cyclescheme. This is an employee benefit in which you can save between 25-39% on the cost of a bicycle and cycling accessories. Payments for the equipment are then deducted through your salary. You can find out more on the Cyclescheme website and invite your employer to join if they haven’t already!

4. Sign Up To Car Share
Sign up free to the website. By sharing journeys you can save money on the cost of travelling by car. Essex car share is an easy and great tool for searching and finding other local people to partner up with. There are already over 20 possible car sharing opportunities from the Saffron Walden area, however, if you still can’t find one suitable for you, why not advertise as a driver? Car sharing is not only great for regular journeys such as commuting but also for one-off trips to events, concerts and festivals.
