Thematic areas


As part of the Scottish Government’s Smarter Choices, Smarter Places programme, Aberdeen City Council has been working in key employment areas to progress travel planning.

Implementing sustainable mobility

The work has involved establishing contacts (travel plan coordinators) within companies. This is done via their travel plans produced through the travel planning process as submitted to the planning department when planning permission is requested. This has enabled joint travel planning activities, such as promotional events and car share schemes. As part of the planning permission process, the Council has also been requesting travel packs/mobility plans detailing travel options to the site be given to all new staff.

Aberdeen City Council would like to expand this programme to include additional companies within the areas of Altens/Nigg (the proposed harbour expansion area) and North Dee (the location of Aberdeen Harbour). This would create a collective network and enable more collaborative working. The roll-out of targeted travel packs/mobility plans to new staff, as well as those affected by infrastructure investment, would also be accelerated. This will be especially important when new infrastructure is impacts on congestion levels in an area. It will also allow Aberdeen City Council to promote options available to individuals once new infrastructure has been installed.
