Travel and Car Park Policy
The Trust acknowledges the need for effective parking and traffic control to ensure the smooth flow of vehicles throughout its sites and the Trust further recognises its responsibility to provide effective access to its sites for patients, visitors and staff. This policy reflects the need for effective on-site parking and traffic management.
The policy will relate to clauses included in the Site-Wide Travel Plan and similar car parking policies approved by our partners on the St. Peter’s Healthcare Campus (SPHC) and follows clauses contained within the S106 agreement (a binding legal agreement associated with planning permission) approved by Surrey County Council and Ashford & St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the policy reflects obligations upon the Trust including the commitment to reduce by 10% the volume of single occupancy car users to the campus between 2010 and 2015. Clauses written into this policy shall, in part, reflect the future campus direction regarding car travel and, as a consequence, car parking.
