Project Key Facts - Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel Birmingham

Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel, Birmingham

Discharge of Planning Condition Support requiring submission of a Green Travel Plan for the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel located in Meriden near Birmingham. The Hotel is rurally located and the Travel Plan was produced to promote sustainable transport choices to the site and to reduce single occupancy vehicle movements associated with the hotel, primarily for staff.

Work including production and co-ordination of a staff travel survey to ascertain staff travel patterns and factors affecting their travel choice. Care needed to be taken to limit the use of walking & cycling Travel Plan measures due to the rural location of the site, therefore proposed measures included a car-share scheme, a ‘get home safe’ policy to provide taxis for staff working late and increased incentives to support the minibus service.

The Local Highway noted that the Travel Plan produced by Evoke was ‘comprehensive and in accordance with guidelines’.
