Encouraging Sustainable Travel
How will people travel beyond Dunsfold Park?
Dunsfold Park is not only designed to make walking and cycling first choice for internal journeys, but also to promote alternatives to wider conventional car travel, including enhanced bus services, dedicated cycle routes and car sharing. Changing ways of working, learning and shopping will eliminate many journeys completely and provide flexibility to travel outside peak times. Smart technologies will facilitate home working and the ordering of goods online. Health and education services will also be accessible online. Dunsfold Park will encourage energy-efficient non- polluting electric vehicles through the provision of universal charging facilities.
Walking and cycling as first choice for all internal journeys
Short distances and attractive routes mean that there will be no need to use a car for journeys within Dunsfold Park.
Walking and cycling connections to neighbouring towns and villages
There will be cycle routes connecting Dunsfold Park with Cranleigh and Dunsfold village. The Wey & Arun Canal Trust is also planning to upgrade the canal towpath.
Enhanced bus services
Dunsfold Park is committed to investing in enhanced bus services to Cranleigh, Godalming, Guildford, Horsham and local villages. Every home will be within 5 minutes’ walk of a bus stop.
Discrete integration of car parking
Every apartment will have a car parking space in a secure undercroft, reducing the need to park on streets. Every house will have two on-plot spaces (more for larger houses) beside the house.
Planning for future change in car ownership, movement patterns and behaviour
Dunsfold Park will promote electric vehicles, car clubs, ride-sharing, cycle hire and subsidised cycle purchase.
Reducing needless journeys through self-containment, delivery services and home- working
The need for wider travel, especially by car at peak hours, will be reduced through internet services, home-working and the clustering of jobs and services at Dunsfold Park.
Welcome pack and travel plan
Dunsfold Park will offer personalised travel planning for every household and every employee to encourage sustainable travel. Welcome packs will include free 12 month membership of the car club and vouchers for bike purchases.
