Over the next ten years we will strive to minimise disruption to local communities by improving traffic management, increasing public transport access, and delivering better car parking facilities.
n January 2020 we established a Sustainable Transport subcommittee of the triple bottom line steering group. Planned actions include further engagement with bus companies to develop and improve bus connections, and surveying visitors to establish how best to encourage the uptake of sustainable transport options. We will also be re-exploring the logistics of park and ride schemes during our busiest periods and possible events.
This spring, staff at Chatsworth were surveyed on sustainable transport options. The results are helping inform how we can support our employees and volunteers in their efforts to commute sustainably.
As an example, in March we hosted an e-bike demo day at Chatsworth. Supported by Giant Sheffield, our staff and volunteers were given the opportunity to try riding a range of brand new e-bikes. Employees are able to use our Bike2Work scheme to purchase their own bike or e-bike and cycling equipment.
To minimise congestion and the resulting greenhouse gas emissions, we encourage the use of public transport. Visitors to Chatsworth who travel by bus are given £5 off selected tickets. Learn more and view bus timetables.
