The development of our Travel Plan has given us our first opportunity as Bedford Girls’ School to work collectively with the local community, the Council, parents and girls.
Since the merger was announced, the perceived threat of increased traffic and shortage of parking on Cardington Road has been a concern for large parts of the community.
The Travel Plan has enabled us to address many of these concerns and we were heartened by the very positive response to the measures the school had introduced to assuage the conflicting demands. Increased parking provided for parents and sixth formers has been well received, the free afterschool care widely adopted and the smoother flow of traffic and greater consideration of parents on Cardington Road have been much appreciated by our local residents.
