This provides the entire framework needed to develop, maintain and improve a School Travel Plan, with the chance for schools to progressively earn Bronze, Silver and Gold Accreditation. If your school would like to develop their own Travel Plan, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Essex County Council’s – Sustainable Travel Planning Team
Support cycling, walking, scooting and other forms of sustainable travel with a School Travel Plan. These can decrease the traffic levels around your school, improving both safety and air quality, and develop a healthier, happier school population.

The Parking Partnership is a Council-run organisation which brings together all street-based parking services in Essex.
The aim is to administer the parking rules to a fair, proportionate and consistent standard in order to provide a service in a reasonable and responsible way.
The service is a partnership between Essex County Council and 12 Borough/City/District Councils and is run in two areas:
- the North Essex Parking Partnership (led by Colchester Borough Council)
- the South Essex Parking Partnership (led by Chelmsford City Council)
Each Partnership is responsible for:
- its area’s on-street Civil Enforcement Officers (“traffic wardens”)
- the enforcement process, together with challenges to, and payments of, parking penalties (“parking fines”)
- the administration of the parking restrictions (“yellow lines”) and the management and maintenance of permit schemes
