1.       Policy Statement

It is the intention of Cambridge Regional College to promote safe, healthy and environmentally friendly travel
to the Science Park Campus.

2.       Introduction

Cambridge Regional College is the largest Further Education establishment in Cambridgeshire. It has a wide
diversity of courses and due to its location on the northern outskirts of Cambridge, attracts students from
South Cambridge and the surrounding counties of Hertfordshire, Essex, Suffolk & Bedfordshire. At present, it
has one (main) site, the Science Park Campus (SPC) which is located at Kings Hedges Road, having
disposed of the smaller City Centre Campus (CCC) located at Newmarket Road in central Cambridge, on 31st
July 2009. The College employs around 700 staff and has over 20,000 students of which over 4,000 are full
time. The campus is open daily throughout the week and delivers teaching during all of the core hours which
also extend to 22:30 for some night classes.

The Travel Plan is a major means of reducing car dependency and comprises three parts.

 A policy statement (above)
 A summary of College Statistics and measures currently in place or in the process of implementation;
     (Sections 3-12 below)
 An implementation strategy (Section 13 onwards) which provides:
        current information on all aspects of the range of travel options and transport provision, (routes, times,
          associated facilities, concessions etc.)
        structures and processes in support of the Travel Plan (audit, review, management, maintenance,
          finance, marketing, communication etc.)
        a commitment to on-going development and further initiatives


The Travel Plan applies to all users of Cambridge regional College e.g.:
     Staff
     Students
     Visitors (including Resident & visiting Contractors)

 Bus (Public and College‟s contract buses and shuttle bus)
 Bicycle
 Motorcycle incl. Scooter & Moped
 Walk
 Train




6.       Access to SPC

 Road - Main access to the SPC is from Kings Hedges Road on to Kings Hedges Drive. Kings Hedges Drive
     runs adjacent to Kings Hedges Road to the East of the site and continues to the back of the College. There
     is also access onto Kings Hedges Drive through the Science Park. There are 6 car parks within the site,
     providing 1,002 car parking spaces. There are 4 access routes onto the site from Kings Hedges Drive
     which can be seen on the SPC Site Plan at Enclosure 1. Rules governing the use of College Car Parks are
     attached at Enclosure 6, “College Parking Regulations”.

 Pedestrian - Kings Hedges road has a footpath on the opposite side of the road to the campus. A
     pedestrian crossing is provided outside the college. Safe pedestrian routes run throughout the campus.

 Cycle - The city of Cambridge and the surrounding areas are well served by a network of safe cycle routes.
     There is a cycle route along Kings Hedges Road and another through the Arbury Estate. The College
     currently has 402 Secure Cycle racks (112 Covered and 290 uncovered). The College also provides
     shower facilities on both the ground and first floors of the Sports Centre in A Block.

 Rail/Bus - The nearest rail station is Station Road, Cambridge, c5 miles from the SPC. The local bus
     company operates a service, Citi 1 which provides ample opportunity to travel from the station to the
     campus. It takes 40 minutes and services are every 10 minutes depending on the time of day. In addition,
     there is a Citi 4 service which serves the SPC every 20 minutes and goes to the city centre via the Grafton
     Centre.
        There are 5 bus services within easy walking distance of the Science Park Campus, plus the CGB.


 Cambridgeshire Guided Busway (CGB) – The County Council have installed a Guided Busway, from St
     Ives to Cambridge; the College have strongly supported this development, including the donation of land, at
     no cost to the Council. The route includes two bus stops immediately adjacent the Science Park Campus
     and will become a key feature of future transport arrangements for the SPC. This new route provides a
     significant additional opportunity for students and staff to access the site. In addition, a proposed new rail
     station at Chesterton sidings will benefit the College.

7.       Transport Patterns

 Travel Peaks
                Morning         08.10 - 09.15 Monday to Friday
                Evening         16.30 - 17.30 Monday to Friday

 Weekends - Mainly visitors using the Sports Hall, Open College, other hirers and Saturday courses.
 Evening Courses - There is less transport choice for students who mainly travel by cars and Citi 1 bus
     route:

         SPC Parking. Monday to Friday, all 5 car parks at the SPC are edging close to capacity at peak
              times.
         Buses Parking.        Minibuses that bring special needs and disabled students to the College have a
              collection and drop off point on the east side of D Block. Contract and shuttle Buses have a collection
              and drop off point outside D Block.
         Vehicle Accident Rates.


                       On Campus           :      Zero Recorded for 2008/9
                       College Vehicles    :      Zero Recorded for 2008/9


8.       Travel Issues

Current travel issues that affect the College can be categorised as follows:

 Contract & Shuttle Buses:
         Some buses over-subscribed at beginning of academic year followed by under-use later in the year.
                       The provision of these contract services costs the College in excess of £550,000 each year.
                        The average number of students (who might otherwise make these trips to the SPC by motor
                        vehicle) who travel on these buses are:
                               636 per day
                               3,142 per week

 Other issues:
         Recently prepared Transport Assessment for site identifies that following consolidation of the College
              onto a single site, the car parks will likely be at 85% capacity. This figure will be higher during
              seasonal peaks and does not allow for any significant potential growth.
9.        Future Developments

The College has completed plans to develop several existing parts of the Science Park Campus. These
developments are likely to have an impact on the College's travel profile and these impacts will be assessed
and monitored as the developments come into use. These include:

 The construction of new buildings (and refurbishment of some existing) at the SPC, largely to take facilities
     previously provided at the CCC. This Project was completed in May 2009.
 The building of a new Reception area.
 The resurfacing of an existing car park
 Cambridgeshire Guided Busway project. The Busway route follows the old rail line on the Science Park
     Campus‟ southern boundary. Construction is scheduled for completion by late summer, 2009. There will be
     two designated stops by the College‟s campus. This will increase the number of buses available for use by
     staff and students; from Huntingdon, St Ives, and villages along its route; to and from the Centre of
     Cambridge, including to and from the Railway & Bus stations and Trumpington Park and Ride.
In addition, the College is committed to considering all fuel options for its current and future vehicle fleet
including dual fuel cars (two are currently owned by the College), commitment to bio-fuels and/or electric etc.
Discussion has also taken place with „Travel For Work‟ about the Science Park Area Travel Plan and the
College has indicated that we would be willing to consider involvement in joint initiatives with the park
businesses as appropriate in the future e.g.:
         Car Club – the Cambridge City Car Club will expand if successful, and provision of cars for use as pool
          cars at the Science Park/CRC may be a possibility in the future.
It should also be noted that if Congestion Charging is introduced, it could have a significant impact on this
Travel Plan.

10.       Data Collection

Extensive data has been collected for 5 years for CRC contract buses and Scholars Fares issued for trains. A
full staff and pupil transport survey was carried out during the 2008/9 academic year; this has been used to
form an essential element of finalising an effective Travel Plan. It provided baseline data for all journeys
including car and cycle journeys and enabled sensible and realistic targets to be considered for modal shift. A
full survey will be conducted each year hence to continuously monitor the travel habits of staff and
students. Although actions are concentrated on increasing the use of contract buses and rail travel to the
College, the impact on car use will be measured against the baseline, with the aim of achieving an increase in
multi-occupancy vehicle trips to the SPC.

11.       Current Provision (i.e. pre-Travel Plan measures adopted)

The College has recognised the need to provide sustainable transport alternatives prior to this plan and
currently provides the following transport provision:

 12 Contract Buses daily, picking up and dropping off at surrounding villages.
 Concessionary passes to under 19‟s on these buses.
 Concessionary passes for rail travel to under 19‟s.
 Cycle racks to accommodate 402 cycles
 1,002 parking spaces of which more than 500 are for the use of students as well as staff and visitors.
 Annual Transport Review
12.       Implementation Strategy (i.e. the way forward)

Provision of Information
Information will be available to staff and students about the full range of travel and transport options; cycling,
walking, public transport (bus and train services), private car use, park and ride. This information is updated
regularly.
Information on the Travel Plan will be available in a variety of ways, but principally through the College web
site. The College‟s web site will be used to alert staff and students to new initiatives. Students will be advised
of the travel policy and parking constraints in the literature sent to them ahead of them taking up a place at the
College.


Travel Plan Steering Group (TPSG)
The following are permanent Members of the TPSG (others will be invited to assist the TPSG as
appropriate/required):
         Services Manager/Deputy Head of Facilities & Estates – also Chair of the group
         Transport Manager/Deputy Services Manager
         Deputy Security Manager
         Head of Learner Engagement & Support
         College Health & Safety Officer
         Head of Academy for Sport, Leisure & Science
         Human Resources Officer
         Student Governor
The Director of Finance & Resources and/or the Head of Facilities & Estates will act as adjudicators as and
when appropriate.


Structures and Processes In Support of the Sustainable Travel Plan
The College has developed structures and processes in support of the sustainable travel plan:

 Accountability - within the College, the Travel Plan Steering Group is responsible for developing transport
  and travel policy for the College. The Facilities and Estates Team reports to the Senior Management Team
  (SMT) and provides advice on policy and implementation. The College is committed to adopting an
  effective Travel Plan to benefit staff, students and the local community and have appointed a Transport
  Manager at a cost in excess of £23,000 per annum to assist in managing the Plan.
 Charging - The College has implemented Car Parking Regulations to assist in effectively managing the
  demand for parking spaces at the Science Park Campus. The College intends to consult on charging
  for some car parking via pay and display for potential implementation by September 2010; the
  charging structure to be reviewed annually. Income from such a scheme would be used to maintain parking
  facilities and make further improvements to them as appropriate.
 Incentives - The College will provide a range of incentives to reduce car travel (and the associated demand
  for parking) and encourage the use of alternatives, for example, the provision of staff cycle loans, the
  promotion of CamShare (car sharing) etc.
 Restrictions – for possible restrictions to parking at the College, see College Parking Regulations at
  Enclosure 6.
 Audit, maintenance and improvement - There will be a rolling programme of audit, maintenance and
  improvement of pedestrian and cycle routes, associated facilities and car parks within the Science Park
  Campus, as appropriate. This is the responsibility of the Travel Plan Steering Group.
 Setting, reviewing and monitoring targets - The College will operate targets for the reduction of car
  usage to and from the campus and increase in multi-car occupancy trips. It will audit the use of car parking
   spaces at different times of the day and year, monitoring the number and type of parking permits issued,
   and will undertake an annual survey of traffic movements and modes of transport and compare these
   statistics on a year on year basis in relation to the growth of the College.
 Marketing and communications - The Travel Plan will be publicised on the web and where appropriate in
   writing in student starter packs and new staff information packs at Induction. These activities are the
   responsibility of the Travel Plan Steering Group.
 External relations - The College will maintain dialogue with external interested parties and actively
   supports partnerships to innovate and manage travel and transport in a sustainable manner, e.g. Travel for
   Work.
 Forms of working – Where appropriate, the College will support working from home, flexitime working and
   the use of video-conferencing, all of which assist in minimising local, national and international travel.

13.    Summary of Measures Incorporated in the Travel Plan and their Impact (The measures
       described below are illustrative rather than exhaustive)

Provision of Information
For each form of travel, information will be provided about:

 key location and form of facilities (car parks, cycle parking, showers, lockers, bus stops and shelters etc,
   restricted areas both within and close by the College etc)
 charges and penalties
 services and incentives (security coding for cycles, car-share, cycle loans etc)
 disruptions to services/re-routing etc.


Information will be available on the web, in printed form, via timetables in bus shelters and distinct signage. All
new students are sent induction packs which will contain information about cycle routes, and conference
delegates receive a map of pedestrian and cycle routes and car parking details in addition to rail information.


Cycling
The College will support cycling in a range of ways:
 Secure and/or covered cycle parking. This is provided at a number of locations around the campus
 Locker/Shower facilities
 Provision of interest free loans to staff for cycle purchase
 A cycle mileage allowance will be payable for travel on College business
 Annual auditing of cycle parking demand and review of the number of secure cycle parking spaces provided



Walking
A network of signed, well-lit pedestrian pathways links all areas of the campus and is linked to external
pathways. The College has audited its sites to ensure that they are DDA compliant with regard to pedestrian
access.


Public Transport
The College supports the use of public transport in a range of ways:

 Bus shelters - The College has provided bus shelters in key locations; Shelters contain timetable
   information.
 Contract Bus Services - The College currently provides 12 contract bus services penetrating well into the
  catchment for staff and students attending the Science Park Campus. These services are accessed via a
  total of 72 stops throughout 4 counties.


Car Park Management and Parking Restrictions

Car parking at the Science Park Campus will be controlled via the College Parking Regulations document,
which will rigorously utilise the College‟s Disciplinary Procedure against those in breach of the regulations and
reserve the right to utilise fixed penalty sanctions in the future if the current procedures prove ineffective.

Car park management and parking restrictions will be implemented as follows (the details below do not
supersede the parking regulations and are intended to be illustrative only. In the event of a penalty being
disputed (when in force), the Parking Regulations will take precedent over any information contained in this
Travel Plan document):

 Permit system/Pay and Display - The College will consider charging for car parking in the form of annual
  permits or pay and display. Permit charges will be a set fee. Charges will be reviewed annually.
 Car share - The College may introduce incentives for car sharing including designated parking spaces.
 Safety - The College seeks to comply with national and local design criteria to enhance safety in car parks.


Marketing and Communication
The following marketing and communications facilities will be available:

 Information outlets - Cambridge Regional College Student Travel Service (located on campus) will
  consider providing information about all forms of non-car travel and a ticket booking service. Maps showing
  the location of cycle parking, cycle paths and pedestrian routes, bus routes and stops, as well as car
  parking are available from the Information Centre.
 Signage - the College will adopt a consistent recognisable Signage system, relating to walking, cycling and
  public transport.
 Web based initiatives - The web is a major means of communicating travel information, including the
  Cambridge Regional College Travel Information service.

The College continues to actively work to reduce single occupancy car journeys and improve car occupancy
ratios by facilitating alternative means of travel. Some examples of this are shown below:

 c120 additional secure cycle parking spaces (some covered) have been installed;
 lighting in pedestrian links has been improved;
 the CamShare car share scheme has been launched/provided;
 measures have been taken to minimise the number of students bringing cars to the College.


The College is committed to encouraging sustainable travel and transport. The College‟s Travel Plan is an
important component of its approach, and the Plan will continue to evolve as the College develops.
14.    Objectives, Targets and Monitoring

Following a comprehensive survey of all staff and students, Tables 1 and 2 present the figures on current
travel mode share and car occupancy by staff and students and set the baseline against which realistic targets
can be set. However, these Tables are only an indication of what will be used; the actual information is
contained in the College Parking Regulations, a copy of which is attached as Enclosure 6 to this Travel Plan.

These will be the baseline figures used to set new targets for car journeys and other trips (see Table 3 & 4
below).

                     CAMBRIDGE REGIONAL COLLEGE
                       CAR PARKING REGULATIONS

Introduction

The Cambridge Regional College Green Travel Plan ("the Plan") is designed
to manage traffic and travel, to and from the College in an environmentally
responsible manner, and thereby make a significant contribution to the quality
of life of the College, and the wider community. The management of car
parking at all College premises is an important part of this process. The
following Car Parking Regulations are intended to support the overall aims of
the Plan and ensure that resources for car parking are used to maximum
effect and to the benefit of all members of the College community.

Parking Permits must be applied for and must be displayed at all times whilst
parked on College premises. Failure to apply for and/or display a valid
Parking Permit is a breech of these Regulations which would result in
disciplinary action being taken. The issue of a Parking Permit does not
guarantee the holder a parking space; if there are no free spaces on site,
alternative, legitimate off-site parking must be sought. The Science Park
adjacent to the College‟s main Campus is strictly for the use of private
companies‟ employees only.

To meet Business Needs at any particular time, the College may decide to
issue Parking Permits on a strictly “need” basis, taking account of disabilities,
distance from public transport serving the site and other factors detailed in
Section 6 of these Regulations.

These Car Parking Regulations apply to all College sites (whether owned or
leased), unless specifically stated differently. As the College‟s main site, there
are frequent references to the Science Park Campus, Kings Hedges Road; in
such cases, there may be additional/different local College Parking
Regulations in force on other sites. It is the responsibility of all users to
ascertain the parking regulations in force at any particular site and to comply
with them.

the internet at www.camre.ac.uk\Single-Site\Green Travel Plan.pdf and I

                                      - 25 -
1. The Parking Scheme

1.1. The College currently accommodates a total of 1,002 car parking spaces.
     Having in the region of15,000 students (c4,000 of whom are full time) and
     c800 staff using the site, it is essential that this resource is managed as
     efficiently as possible.

1.2 The College will regulate car parking as follows:

    1.2.1. On College premises, parking is only permitted to those holding a
           valid Parking Permit under the College Parking Permit System
           (detailed in Section 2 below).

1.3. Drivers of all vehicles parked on College premises must comply with the
    provisions of the College Parking Permit System. Failure to comply with
    the provisions of this system will result in disciplinary action being taken
    and/or a Permit being withdrawn irrevocably. In addition, it may result in a
    Fixed Penalty Ticket being served (when in force). Sanctions for non-
    compliance with these regulations are detailed in Section 7.

1.4 Emergency & Delivery vehicles are the only vehicles exempt from the
    requirement to hold a Parking Permit for parking on College premises.

1.5 The management of car parking for people with disabilities is detailed in
    Section 4.

1.6 The College‟s car parks are designated according to their category of use:

    1.6.1. Staff Car Parks (see paragraph 2.4)

    Only Authorised Staff (and Resident Contractors) displaying a valid
    College Parking Permit, or Authorised Visitors (see paragraph 2.7)
    displaying a Temporary/Visitors Parking Permit may park in Staff Car
    Parks (Car Parks 2, 4 and 5). Staff must not park in Car Parks 1, 3a or
    3b.

    1.6.2. Student

    Any current College student, may only park in the Student Car Parks (Car
    Park 3a or 3b) and must display a valid College Parking Permit when
    doing so. Student motorcycles may only be parked on the 3 designated
    concrete spaces
    in Car Park 3a.

    1.6.3. Visitors

    There is only one dedicated Visitors parking area at the College; Car Park
    1, located at the front of the Science Park Campus, between Kings
    Hedges Drive and Reception. This car park may be used by General
    Visitors displaying a valid College Parking Permit, only; the one exception

                                     - 26 -
    to this is that Sports Centre visitors may also use this Car Park, but only
    after 17:00 daily, Mondays to Fridays. Legitimate clients of the restaurant,
    bistro and salons may also be allowed to park in other staff parking areas
    e.g. by the Sports Centre or by the Catering block in Car Park 2.

    1.6.4 Car Sharing Parking Areas

    In the future, the College may decide that certain areas may be
    designated as “car share” parking where vehicle owners are required to
    park displaying two College Staff Parking Permits. Failure to display two
    permits is a breech of these Regulations which will lead to disciplinary
    action; furthermore, it may render the vehicle owner liable to sanctions
    (see Section 7).


1.7 Motorcycles, scooters and mopeds must not be parked in bicycle sheds,
    bicycle parking areas or in car parking bays. Dedicated motorcycle
    parking is provided in the following locations:

      For Staff – 2 areas within Car Park 2, plus one smaller area by the
       covered bicycle shed on the north east corner of E Block
      For Students – 2 areas, one at either end of Car Park 3a

All users of the motorcycle parking areas are required to register their vehicle
and apply for a College Parking Permit. This permit must be displayed on the
vehicle, otherwise disciplinary action will be taken and sanctions may apply as
detailed in Section 7 of these regulations.

1.8 Parking on campus is authorised only for activities connected with the
    College‟s operations and then only on a daily (not overnight) basis. Any
    requests for overnight parking will be granted in exceptional
    circumstances only (e.g. due to trips on college business of longer than 24
    hours) and should be directed to the College Security Manager or his
    Deputy. The Corporation is not liable for any damage, howsoever
    caused, to any vehicle parked on College premises, regardless of the
    period of time they are parked.




                                     - 27 -
2. The College Parking Permit System

College Parking Permits remain the property of the College and they must be
returned to the Facilities and Estates Office in room C111 at the Science Park
Campus immediately the user ceases to be an employee or student of the
College.

2.1. General Visitors (including visiting contractors) to the College are
     required to park in Car Park 1, then report to the Reception Desk and
     inform Receptionists of their vehicle Registration Number. Receptionists
     will log these details in the Booking In book for checking as necessary by
     College security personnel. There will be no requirement for Visitors
     to place any temporary parking permit in their vehicle.

This does not apply to Resident Contractors who are entitled to/required to
use the staff parking bays within Car Parks 2, 4 & 5 only but must obtain a
Staff Parking Permit, for display in the windscreen of their vehicle at all times
whilst on College premises.

2.2. Authorised Staff must apply for a Parking Permit if parking a vehicle on
     the College‟s premises. The issue of a Parking Permit will be subject to
     meeting certain criteria set out in Section 6 of these regulations. Details
     of the Applications System are dealt with at Section 5 and Appendix 1
     respectively.

2.3. "Authorised Staff" means all current employees of the College (including
     Temporary Staff), and personnel working on College premises with a
     tenancy agreement, who meet the selection criteria set out in Section 6
     of these regulations.

2.4 Authorised Students must apply for a Parking Permit if parking a vehicle
    on the College‟s premises. The issue of a Parking Permit will be subject
    to meeting certain criteria set out in Section 6 of these regulations.
    Details of the Applications System are dealt with at Section 5 and
    Appendix 1 respectively.

2.5. "Authorised Student" means any students admitted to the College who
     meet the selection criteria set out in Section 6 of these regulations.

2.6. Student Permits only entitle the holder to park in designated Student Car
     Parks, currently Car Parks 3a and 3b for cars and 3a only for
     motorcycles.

2.7. "Authorised Visitors", for the purpose of these Regulations, will include:

2.7.1. Conference organisers and delegates;

2.7.2. Contractors/Consultants retained by the College (while working on
       College premises);


                                     - 28 -
2.7.3. Members of the general public attending College events (parents,
       carers etc) or visiting the grounds for specific recreational purposes
       (e.g. clients to H&B, Catering Restaurant, Sports Centre etc);

2.7.4. Invited guests of the College at College Security Manager‟s discretion;

2.7.5. Protocol staff, who will be issued with a different coloured Parking
       Permit and be issued with a Proximity Card that only allows them
       access to Car Park 5, which is the only car park they will be allowed to
       use.

2.8    Other Types of Permit

The following types of permits are authorised:-

       2.8.1 Staff Permits

       Staff Permits are issued only to 'Authorised Staff' (see paragraph 2.3)
       who meet the selection criteria. Permits are not transferable. These
       Permits authorise the use of Staff Only Car Parks during working hours
       (Monday to Friday 07:00 hours to 21:30 hours).

       Staff Parking Permits will show the following details only: “Staff
       Parking Permit”, Permit No. and Registration No. As part of the
       introduction of these College Parking Regulations, new Parking Permits
       will be issued in time for implementation at the start of the 2009/10
       Financial Year.

       Staff permits are only valid while the holder is at work on College
       premises. Failure to comply with these Regulations will result in
       disciplinary action and may invoke action as detailed at Section 7.

       As well as a Parking Permit (for display in a prominent place in/on the
       vehicle whilst on College premises), staff will also be issued a
       Proximity Swipe Card which will give them access to the staff car
       parks via the vehicle control barriers.

       2.8.2 Student Permits

       Student Permits are issued only to 'Authorised Students' (see
       paragraph 2.5) who meet the selection criteria. Permits are not
       transferable. These Permits authorise the use of Student Only Car
       Parks during working hours (Monday to Friday 07:00 hours to 22:30
       hours). All Student Parking Permits are valid for the duration of the
       student‟s course at the College or until the student leaves earlier for
       whatever reason. The College will consider the introduction of a Pay
       and Display system (payable on a daily basis) for students from
       September 2010 as set out in Appendix 1 of these Regulations.



                                      - 29 -
       2.8.3 Visitor Permits

       These permits are valid for up to 8 hours on the day of use only, and
       may be used only in Car Park 1 (Visitors) . Clients of Catering, Hair &
       Beauty in J Block (who should have booked in advance), may park in
       Car Park 2.

       Note: Access to barrier controlled staff car parks is gained by calling
       the relevant Reception, by pressing one of three call buttons at the
       entrances to the car parks and explaining who you are and who you
       are visiting.

2.9. Transfer of Permits

Permits are issued to specific vehicles whose registration number is endorsed
on the permit. When in force, in order to promote car sharing, permits may be
specifically authorised for shared use, and be transferable between multiple
specified vehicles (maximum of three) whose registration numbers are
endorsed on the Permit, subject to two permits being displayed if a car
sharing space is being used.

2.10 Entitlement to Free Parking Permits

Certain vehicles are entitled to free Parking Permits - details of this scheme
can be found in Section 4, for drivers with disabilities and special needs.

Where Parking Permits are free, registration is still mandatory and exempt
vehicles must still display a valid Parking Permit.

2.11 Use of Disabled (Blue Badge) Parking Facilities at College Premises

Disabled (Blue Badge) Permits are only authorised for use at College
Premises when the holder is a member of staff, or a Student working/studying
at the College.

Disabled visitors - see Section 4.

2.12 Student Parking

These permits authorise the use of General Car Parks (3a and 3b) only
(although Staff Car Parks may be used after 16:30 daily) and are only valid
during working hours (Monday to Friday 08:30 to 17:30 hours for day time
students and until 22:30 for evening students). Failure to comply with these
Regulations may invoke action as detailed at Sections 7 and 8.




                                     - 30 -
3. General Criteria for the Use of Car Parks

3.1. The General Criteria for Usage apply to each and every College car
     park.

3.2. Parking in College Car Parks is permitted only if the user clearly displays
     a valid Permit or a valid Pay and Display ticket, when in force. Permits
     authorise the holder to park on College property, but do not guarantee a
     parking space.

3.3. There are no dedicated parking spaces other than for people with
     disabilities and/or special needs, and for service, delivery and
     emergency vehicles, (and, when in force, car sharing spaces).

3.4. The Head of Facilities & Estates or his nominated deputy may authorise
     parking areas to be temporarily cordoned and dedicated for specific and
     temporary operational purposes.

3.5. To facilitate access to College lectures or classes, concerts or
     entertainments, or sporting activities during 'off peak' periods (i.e.
     between 16:30 hours and 22:00 hours on weekdays, and between 16:30
     hours on Friday and 22:00 hours on Sunday), the College reserves the
     right to occasionally specify that car parks, of whatever category, will be
     free of charge or the need to display Permits. Users must still comply
     with all other requirements of these Regulations. There will be no refund
     of any Parking Permit fees for any period when the Car Parking is
     designated as free of charge.

3.6. Access to all College premises, including car parks of whatever
     category, is by permission of the College. The College retains the right to
     refuse entry to car parks, and to require users to leave car parks and
     remove their vehicle, at any time and at its own discretion.

3.7. Vehicles must be properly parked within authorised parking areas
     designated by white lines.

Parking is strictly forbidden:

       3.7.1. In a location where a notice clearly prohibiting parking is
              displayed, for example outside emergency exits, High Voltage
              substations/plant rooms, delivery areas or on emergency
              access/service routes.

       3.7.2. On double yellow lines, areas hatched with yellow lines, or areas
              denoted with red or green road markings.

       3.7.3. In an area marked as temporarily or permanently allocated for
              use by visitors/College Vehicles or for example, in connection
              with maintenance or construction work.


                                     - 31 -
       3.7.4. On grassed areas, on foot and cycle pathways or turning circles.

       3.7.5. In areas temporarily cordoned and dedicated by the Head of
              Facilities and Estates or his nominated deputy for specific and
              temporary operational purposes.

       Failure to comply with any of the above, will result in disciplinary action
       being taken against the offender and may result in sanctions, as
       detailed in Section 7.

3.8. All vehicles carrying a Parking Permit, of whatever category, must have
     a current road fund licence, current appropriate insurance and be
     roadworthy or the Permit is invalidated.

3.9. Vehicles without a current road fund licence must not be parked
     anywhere on College premises, and if so parked are liable to receive a
     Fixed Penalty Ticket (when in force).

3.10. Permits are not transferable except when specifically authorised for
      shared use.

3.11. No alterations or changes must be made to the Permit. This will render
      the Permit invalid. Changes should be notified to the Facilities & Estates
      Department for amendment or replacement of the Permit. Copies of the
      permit are invalid and if used, disciplinary action will be taken and when
      in force, a Fixed Penalty Ticket is liable to be issued to the vehicle.

3.12. The College Transport Manager, Security Staff (including staff seconded
      to the Security Section) and anyone designated by the Facilities and
      Estates Department are authorised to direct traffic on College property,
      regulate entry to car parks, exercise control over parking and ensure
      compliance with the College Parking Regulations.

3.13. No responsibility or liability is accepted by the College, its employees or
      agents for damage to or loss of any vehicle or its contents parked on
      College property.

3.14. Disciplinary action will be taken against anyone failing to comply with
      these Regulations and they may also have their permit revoked, as
      outlined in Section 7. In addition, they may be issued with a Fixed
      Penalty Ticket (when in force).

3.15. To ensure that users of the College‟s car parks are reminded of their
      responsibilities under these Regulations, and the sanctions for failing to
      comply with these Regulations, the College will, as it thinks fit, provide
      adequate road signage and road markings within car parks, along
      access routes and at entrance points to College property, subject to
      planning constraints.

4. Drivers with Disabilities and Special Needs and “Blue Badge”
   Permits

4.1. College Disability Permits will be issued free on application, to members
     of the College community who hold and produce a valid national disability
     permit (a 'Blue Badge'), and to those members who have a permanent or
     temporary disability or special needs as approved by the Travel Plan
     Steering Group.

4.2. Special "Blue Badge Parking Only" parking bays are provided within each
     main car park and at locations close to key buildings. These spaces are
     dedicated for the use of vehicles displaying a valid/current Disability
     Permit.

4.3. Drivers with disabilities should comply with all other provisions in relation
     to parking, including displaying of their College Parking Permit.




                                      - 33 -
5. Applications for Parking Permits

5.1. Staff must complete a Staff Parking Application Form and sign the
     necessary declaration which states that they have the necessary, valid
     documents for the vehicle being registered e.g. proof of ownership
     (Registration Document), full & current driving licence, appropriate vehicle
     insurance & MOT and that the vehicle is in a roadworthy state and will be
     kept as such. In order to facilitate the planning of transport costs (i.e. to
     evaluate customer requirements), certain information is required during
     the application process. Accordingly, failure to complete the form fully will
     negate the application.

5.2. On application for a Student Parking Permit, when signing the application,
     the student is verifying that he/she has a valid, full & current driving
     licence for the correct classification of vehicle, the Vehicle Registration
     Document, and a valid Certificate of Insurance (or Cover Note). The
     student will be required to produce proof of student identity.

Note: Provisional Driving Licences are not acceptable.

5.3 Transport Year

The Colleges Transport Year extends from 1st August to 31st July. All permits
remain valid as follows:

      For Staff – until they cease employment at/for the College or until their
       Permit is removed for any reason, at the discretion of the College.
      For Students – until the end of their course/learning period at the
       College or until the Permit is removed for whatever reason, at the
       discretion of the College.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that a relevant and authorised
permit is visibly displayed within a vehicle parked on College property and to
ensure they apply for and obtain their permits in time for the start of the
coming Transport Year.

5.4 Any annual charges that may be in force at any time are not refundable
    under any circumstances.

6. Parking Permit “need” Criteria

The “need” criteria is not currently in force but may be introduced and
implemented at any time in the future when the business needs of the College
dictate that it is necessary. Therefore, all applications for a Parking Permit will
currently be accepted. However, it should be remembered that, the issue of a
Parking Permit does not guarantee the holder a parking space, merely
permission to park on site in a designated, lined space, if any are available.

6.1 It is acknowledged that the parking provision on the Science Park
    Campus may not always meet the total demand for parking on the site by
    staff and students.

6.2 It is therefore intended to restrict the level of permits that are issued, with
    the need for a permit being considered against a set of criteria. Once a
    permit has been issued, it will not be rescinded in that parking period,
    other than when College Parking Regulations are broken (and no refund
    will be given) or if circumstances dictate the need to urgently review this
    criteria. It should be noted that if a member of staff or a student receives
    a Parking Permit for one period, it does not guarantee receipt of a permit
    in subsequent years/periods.

6.3 The criteria against which permit applications will be considered are:

       6.3.1 Disabilities (see Section 4)

       6.3.2 Essential car user (staff), reason must be stated on the
             application form e.g. child care responsibilities etc.

       6.3.3 Proximity of home location to Science Park Campus – distance

       6.3.4 Proximity of home location to nearest Cambridgeshire Guided
             Busway (CGB) bus stop.

       6.3.5 Length of public journey trip from home location to Science Park
             Campus (measured in time and availability of public transport)

       6.3.6 Ability to Car Share (Note: named car sharers must be listed on
             applications and must also apply for a permit on the same basis)

       6.3.7 Presentation of reasons why alternative modes are not possible,
             which must constitute special circumstances.

6.4 Applicants will be scored against the criteria and issued a permit
    accordingly.

6.5 The level of parking demand will be continually monitored to ensure that
    an appropriate level of Parking Permits are issued so as not to cause
    any overspill parking.


                                      - 35 -
6.6 The College reserves the right to alter the level of Parking Permits
    available at any time.

6.7 Those applicants who are not successful in their application for a permit
    will be able to benefit from personal travel planning advice.

7.    Sanctions for Non Compliance with these Regulations

7.1 Enforcement of these Car Parking Regulations will be undertaken by
    College and Contract Security staff. Failure to comply with these
    Regulations may result in one or more of the following:

       7.1.1. Withdrawal of an individual's authorisation for an existing Parking
              Permit

       7.1.2. Withdrawal of an individual's authorisation for a Parking Permit in
              the future

       7.1.3. Withdrawal of an individual's permission to access all College car
              parking facilities, now and in the future.

       7.1.4. Issuing of a Fixed Penalty Ticket (when in force).

7.2    When Fixed Penalty Ticketing is in force, the Enforcement Contractor
       will be required to provide their contact details.

7.3    The Enforcement Contractor will be required to provide photographic
       evidence of any breach of these regulations that result in Sanctions
       being brought (when Fixed Penalty Ticketing is in force).

7.4    The Facilities and Estates department have no power to waive any
       charges incurred by breach of these regulations (with regard to Fixed
       Penalty Ticketing, when it is in force).

7.5    The Travel Plan Steering Group will review any appeals at the Monthly
       Review Meetings with the Contractor.




                                     - 37 -
8. Implementation and Management of these Regulations

8.1. The implementation and management of these Regulations on behalf of
     the College shall be the responsibility of the Head of Facilities & Estates
     with operational management delegated via the Travel Plan Steering
     Group to the College Transport Manager, College Security Manager and,
     when in force, the Enforcement Contractor.

8.2. Complaints and representations should initially be made to the
     Enforcement Contractor where the issue relates to financial sanctions
     imposed (when Fixed Penalty Ticketing is in force). Issues may then be
     escalated to the Security Manager. Where it is not possible to resolve the
     situation in this way, the case will be referred to the Travel Plan Steering
     Group, who in turn, where necessary, will refer it to the Head of Facilities
     & Estates and/or the Director of Finance & Resources for a final decision.

8.3 Staff car parking on College property is covered by the College's
    Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures. Student car parking, where
    matters fall outside the remit of these Regulations, will be referred to the
    Head of Learner Engagement & Support in compliance with the Student
    Disciplinary procedures.
