How’s your shiny new office?

This article was published in 2008, in Newsletter 80.

Has your company moved in the last two years – or does it have a lovely new extension?

Cambridge Water Company is an example of a company that has relatively recently moved into new offices and as an employer is a Travel to Work scheme full member

If so the Travel for Work Partnership (TfW) wants to hear from you. Why? Well, it is most likely that the planning permission for the new building will have required a workplace travel plan to be developed to encourage more cycling, car sharing, bus use etc., to the site.

TfW (of which the Cycling Campaign is a Steering Group member) is looking for suitable work sites with travel plan requirements. These will be considered for a project that will see TfW assisting employers to develop their travel plans. The project will then attempt to encourage neighbouring employers to join in as part of a wider travel plan network.

TfW has EU funding to support this project, which could be of great assistance to your employer, to your colleagues and to the aim of increasing cycling to work generally.

If you think your work site would be eligible please contact Mark Webb at Travel for Work on 01223 712429 or email All contacts by 31st October will have the possibility of winning one of three Parker Pens!
