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.
  • Non-residential:
    - 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.
