The council was awarded for ongoing efforts to support staff with active and sustainable travel choices, such as walking, cycling and using public transport.
As part of the Travel Plan a council-wide staff travel survey was carried out to gather feedback and to help address some of the barriers to greener, healthier travel.
Site audits were carried out at the council’s central administration buildings (CABs) and an improved package of initiatives has been put in place for Council staff, this includes savings on bicycles through the Cycle to Work scheme, e-cargo bikes for local deliveries, electric vehicles for site visits, a reduction in car parking spaces and a season ticket purchase scheme to provide discounted travel on public transport.
The Council’s travel demand management team works with schools and businesses across the city to provide them with support in creating their own green travel plans and initiatives and achieving accreditation for these schemes.
