Air pollution does not respect borough boundaries and therefore when it comes to issues of air quality the effective options available to individual Boroughs can be limited. Consequently, the West London Air Quality Cluster Group was formed.
Our free training workshops present a unique opportunity to hear about the outcomes we have achieved and network with like-minded professionals from a variety of disciplines who all work towards common objectives.
As part of its commitment to improving transport and travel within the sub region, the WestTrans Partnership is finalising a scoping study which will define the current position of cycling within the West London sub region and investigate and agree an action plan to achieve the potential for growth in cycling.
Delivery and Service Plans (DSPs) have the potential to mitigate potentially serious congestion issues across all street types from High Streets to residential roads but until now their use has been scant and their performance remains unknown. The purpose of this project is to provide an understanding of the current situation for securing DSPs and to use this as the basis for creating guidance for best practice in the development and future management of DSPs in West London.
Faith sites are key trip generators in the subregion that operate as community 'hubs' which are ideal for the dissemination of new ideas and practices. It is with this in mind that WestTrans extended its existing sectoral approach to travel demand management, with support from the Mayor's Air Quality Fund, to engage visitors to participate in activities which will actively foster the adoption of more sustainable travel behaviour and raise awareness of local air quality issues.
WestTrans are delivering WRRR at a sub-regional level for West London. We have partnered with West London Alliance to deliver this project which we hope will build upon our current work in freight and makes the most of our existing relationships with contractors, planning authorities and local authorities to further reduce risk for vulnerable road users.
WestTrans are currently developing a freight strategy to better understand the impacts on West London of freight movements and seek to continually improve the efficiency, safety and sustainability of freight movement by all modes into, out of and through the sub-region.
WestTrans offer support to higher education and further education (HE/FE) institutions, key trip generators and ideal places within which to engage with young people at a stage when they start to form adult travel behaviours as they become legally able to drive and independent.
WestTrans support hotels in the West London area that are interested in improving transport arrangements at their premises which could be the first step towards gaining accreditation with the Green Tourism Scheme.
WestTrans is part of a number of networks and fourms which are used as a platform to engage with different stakeholders with regards to new programmes, projects, initiatives or policy and provide updates on regional and national government activity, opportunities & risks, strategic priorities and dissemination of best practice.
WestTrans supports the NHS community across west london in the development and delivery of site specific travel plans as well as financial support for a range of innovative travel demand management projects for delivery.
Since June 2012 WestTrans has taken full responsibility for monitoring the implementation of Development Control Travel Plans across five of the six West London boroughs. Harrow Council takes responsibility for its own Travel Plan monitoring.
