  Set up a partnership of public and private sector which is ultimately self funding and self financing

  Help achieve Bromley’s target of a 10% reduction in car use in and around the Town Centre

  Work with developers and all other stakeholders to achieve consensus on the need to develop and
  implement Travel Demand Management (TDM) measures to reduce pressure on the road network as a
  result of the planned development (AAP)

  Contribute to the vibrant and thriving Bromley Town Centre and maintain and enhance its competitive
  economic and business community and achieve funding

  Raise Bromley Council’s profile in community leadership
