3 Summary Lulworth Student Company is operating as a private hall provider and is pleased to support the Bournemouth University Travel Plan The Student accommodation has a capacity of 250 and offers for all residences bike storage and is located right next to the Lansdowne campus with good access to bus transports. As a relative new Student Accommodation Building in Bournemouth we are committed to improve travel habits, options and the environmental impact in and around Bournemouth. The trends of high travel demand and rising congestions lead to the conception of a sustainable project, which works towards a more sustainable travel attitude. The Travel Plan is a central part of the Lulworth Student Company and Bournemouth University to promote a sustainable travel initiative expansion of transport services, improving infrastructure and a better use of existing capacity. The long term strategy can assist in increasing accessibility to transport while reducing congestion, local air pollution, greenhouse gases, noises, which is an outcome inspired by collective behaviour change. This Travel Plan has been produced for Lulworth Student Company in Bournemouth and in incorporation with the Bournemouth University primarily for Students. This document provides an overview of the current transport establishment and travel patterns of BU Students. It also sets out the measures which we intend to introduce in order to meet our travel plan objectives. The delivery of this action plan requires effective leadership, communication and investments. Lulworth Student Company aims: To encourage students to a green and active modes of travel to and from the campus. Managing student s use of cars to travel to campus Raising awareness amongst students of the impact of their travel choices on their health and local environment. Improvements to the quality of facilities for the whole range of sustainable travel modes (e.g. working with partners to improve cycling facilities, quality of public transport, service and facilities) Improving information and communication (through websites, Apps and other sources) with other institutions for transport and travel information give students a better navigation of travel choices and options. Bournemouth University launched the first travel plan in 2003 in response the national and local transport policy, outlining the need of more sustainable travel options. Their primary intention was to reduce the numbers of staff and students travelling to the university by car alone. After monitoring the new implemented travel plan, which indicated achievements but also revealed area of improvements. The published travel plan in was successfully implemented with new 3

4 investments in the subsidised university bus services and showed the first positive result in reducing the number of students travelling by car alone. Key numbers of success: Staff driving alone to work decreased from 67% in 2003 down to 49% in Numbers of student travelling by car alone reduced by 8% from 2008 until Despite the positive numbers, the long term objectives of the travel plan is to reduce the numbers of staff travelling to work alone significantly. Our collective aspiration is not only to increase the usage of bikes and promote cycling options and services but also to additionally increase the proportion of car shares across all distances travelled. This travel plan attend to measure the accessibility of Lulworth Student Housing and Bournemouth University for staff, students and visitors with a range of travel options. This document will be regularly reviewed, reflecting our belief that a developed travel plan can mitigate adverse traffic impacts and the Government recognises their importance at the local level. LSC genuinely believes that a travel plan as such is a continuous improvement, requiring monitoring and revision to ensure it remains relevant to us and those using the site. The key objectives for this Travel Plan To capture commuter and business travel data for carbon foot printing purposes in order to Satisfy the Planning Process and set the baseline for future reductions; To improve the choice of transport options and facilities available to staff, students and visitors travelling to, from, and between University sites; To implement travel initiatives through behaviour change that reduce transport-related emissions and thus meet our strategic targets to reduce the environmental impact of the Student residence travel demand locally, nationally and globally; To reduce the use of single occupancy vehicles by staff travelling to and from and between, Student accommodation site and increase the use of cycling, walking and public transport use; To promote more sustainable ways of working; To improve the health and fitness of staff and students through the promotion of walking and cycling; Deliver a leading Travel Plan Support the Estates Development Framework and associated planning applications Provide and continue to improve real and affordable transport options and facilities Manage the demand of car parking within current and future levels of provision Reduce the impact of travel associated with the Student Housing on the local community. 4

5 Targets In order to access whether we are successful in achieving these objectives, a range of output and outcome targets will be used. By the end of 2018, with the proposed initiatives, the Lulworth Student Comapny will: Raise awareness of sustainable travel options open to University staff, students and visitors; Reduce the carbon impact of Students travel by 35%; Reduce single occupancy vehicle trips amongst staff to 34% (from 49%) and students to 3% Increase regular bus users; Increase the number of staff cycling and walking to our sites. Output targets Output targets relate to action to achieve by a particular date or trigger point. Area of Focus Output targets Mode affected Deriving mode shift from Review accessibility levels within 3 Bus/Cycle/Walk staff that live within 3 miles to each campus miles of the Lulworth Implement 120 extra cycle parking Company office spaces Provide two additional secure cycle compounds Staff bus mode share to Find a Bus Travel Champion Bus Lulworth office Parking permit distance is the most effective way of tackling single occupancy car use Provision of 5 RTPI units Implement parking permit threshold distance to 2 miles Encourage car sharing Provide 20 allocated car sharing spaces Increase car share website enrolment by 50 members Increasing bus service Increase the frequency of the U1 vacation service Undertake a vacation trial on one further service to assess take up All modes Car Bus Clearer policy and promotion of home working could encourage staff to work remotely Publish a Work from Home Policy (WFH) Provision of 10 Laptops for use WFH All Modes 5

6 Student travel habits The 2010 student travel survey highlighted that the average student commute is 4.7 miles with 83% of students living within 5 miles of the university and 67% living within two miles. Analysis of the 2010 students survey revealed that there was a significant decrease in the numbers= of students driving alone on three days a week or more to the university from 2007 to 2010 (from 15% to 7%). The reduction in student s car trips resulted in an increase in more sustainable modes. Walking 115, cycling (1%), and bus travels (4) all increased between 2007 and The previous Travel Plan has produced significant improvements in students travel over the last five years. This demonstrates the benefits of rolling out measures over the long-term and embedding them within the overall student experience package. The number of staff choosing to travel alone by car to the university has risen between 2007 and The up to dated Travel Plan will address this trend as well as managing the levels of single occupancy car use as future development plans implemented. Table of university-wide, main modes of travel by students travelling to campus three days a week or more Mode 2002/ trend Targets Car alone 15% 15% 7% -8% 5% Cycle 7% 8% 9% +2% 10% Walk 38% 33% 44% +6% 44% Bus 27% 31% 35% +8% 36% Rail 1% 3% 2% +1% 2% Car Share 11% 10% 3% -8% 3% Motorised two wheelers 0% 0% 0% 0% 0% 6

However, there are changes that can be made to reduce the environmental impact of car use. Lulworth and BU offers staff and students the opportunity to save money. BU has its own free car sharing database which matches people making similar journeys. The Travel Plan hopes to encourage lifts sharing by offering dedicated parking spaces and other incentives for car sharers. Members of the BU car sharing group will qualify for the Lift Home Policy ; if your driver has to leave without you, the University will pay for a taxi. More info under: https://www1.bournemouth.ac.uk/about-bournemouthuniversitytransport_and_maps/car_sharing.html BU Travel Champion, the Travel Plan will seek to identify walking, cycling, bus, rail and car share champions to enhance the profile of each travel type. The modal champions will be passionate about the benefits associated with their mode and keen to tell other about why travelling that way is so beneficial. If you are interested in being a travel champion, or would just like more information about the BU Travel Plan, please 7

18 Travel Plan Management The progression and success of the Travel Plan is dependent upon the support and commitment from the governing body of Lulworth Student Company, Bournemouth University and transport Institutions as well as staff and students. The Plan must link into and complement the Lulworth key objectives and values. The Travel plan is managed by the Lulworth Company Committee which has appointed a Travel Plan Coordinator, who will be monitoring and reviewing the: development and implementation of the Travel Plan; designing and implementing effective marketing and awareness-raising campaigns co-ordinating the consultation process; acting as a point of contact for all staff and students requiring information to approve the Institutional IT Strategy for incorporation within the Lulworth Strategic Plan and Annual Budget annually the environmental sustainability policy environmental practices onsite in line with issues highlighted in the environmental sustainability policy Recommending changes to Lulworth Student Company policy and practice; Promoting environmental improvements to the University s operations; presenting a case to help secure a budget for Travel Plan development and ensuring Efficient and effective use. Management of new arrivals and departures. Arrival On commencement of the new academic year we have allocated for the new intake of students a 3-5 day arrival window and a given time allocation on a certain day for the students to arrive at the premises. We have highlighted all local car parks close to our student halls of residence for students being dropped off by family/friends in cars, by spreading the arrivals over the course of a 5-day period this will help with any congestion issues that might arise. All students that will be arriving by car will be given a time slot and day for them to come down to the residence, by monitoring this we will not have any issues. Students arriving by train / coach will be given directions by on how to get to our residence and bus times if needed, they will find all the relevant maps and timetables in our travel plan or on our website. 18

19 Departure: As the student s courses and exams differ towards the end of the academic year, this allows the departure of student from the residence to take place over the course of the month. All students being picked up by cars have their allocated car parks to be picked up from and all students leaving by train / coach have the information to them in their travel plans.
