Green travel firm to keep working at estate
SUSTAINABLE travel specialists have been given a new contract to work on the 4,250-home New Lubbesthorpe development.
The Drummond Estate awarded a further three-year contract to Go Travel Solutions.
The deal is intended to ensure that as the development evolves, sustainable travel options are widely promoted and developed.
This includes the ArrivaClick demand bus service and free access to travel offers via membership of LocalGo.
More initiatives are planned to help residents reduce the need to own their own car to access amenities.
Go Travel Solutions has fulfilled the role of travel plan coordinator since 2018.
Managing director Robin Pointon said: “Our work in New Lubbesthorpe focuses on the promoting and development of sustainable travel.
“Working with Drummond Estate over the last three years has been based on close collaboration and partnership working.
“More than anything else, it has been underpinned by shared values on wanting to help New Lubbesthorpe be a truly sustainable 21st century community.”
Martin Ward, on behalf of the Drummond Estate, said: “New Lubbesthorpe is a sustainable new community and Go Travel Solutions has successfully helped to roll out initiatives which provide attractive and viable alternatives to using the car.
“We are keen to see its great work continue to ensure that this continues to be a pioneering development.”
