The objective of the study is to explore the opportunities to improve the Travel, Transport and Parking arrangements across the Business District in response to concerns raised by businesses and in support of Manor Royal's continued growth.
Since 2013 Manor Royal has enjoyed significant growth. Coupled with high levels of in-commuting this has lead to pressue on the local road and parking infrastructure, which has been highighted by surveys conducted by the BID. In response specialist transport consultants Steer Davies Gleave were commissioned to assess the real impact this is having and to evaluate a range of possible actions, including drawing on best practice from elsewhere.
The final report has highlighted a range of possible actions including infrastructure improvements, managing on-street parking and efforts to encourage behaviour change. The BID is now working with partners to expore how these recommendations can be prioritised and delivered.
