Major developments should include travel plan, says LibDem AM

Jenny Randerson, Liberal Democrat AM for Cardiff Central, has proposed a Legislative Competence Order which would enable the Welsh Assembly Government to insist that major land use developments include a travel plan.

Jenny explains: "It is essential that all new, large, planning developments take account of people's transport habits and adopt a transport plan within the development that could, among other things, ensure that there is adequate scope for accessible public transport provision, adequate parking provision, integrated cycling links as well as ensuring that the development is accessible by foot."

Sustrans has expressed its broad support.
