What is a Green Travel Plan?
A Green Travel Plan (GTP) sets out a plan designed to encourage the use of more sustainable modes of transport. The plan typically includes targets and actions for a new development to promote walking, cycling and the use of public transport and carpooling.
When is a Green Travel Plan required?
Manningham City Council proposes to introduce environmentally sustainable design application requirements for applications for a planning permit. Under these requirements, a GTP will be required for the following development types:
- Accommodation/mixed use with residential component of:
- 10 or more dwellings; or
- Development of a building for accommodation other than dwellings with a gross floor area of more than 1000 square metres.
- Development of a non-residential building with a resulting gross floor area of more than 1000 square metres; or
- Alterations and additions greater than 100 square metres.
