Car sharing solutions boost the chances of success for planning applications

Section 106 requirements mean planning applications must include solutions that reduce a development’s impact on communities, including local congestion and pollution. Partnering with Ubeeqo Car Club could be the answer.

Partnering with Ubeeqo helps housebuilders & developers to not only meet current planning regulations and obligations, but also benefits local residents and those moving into the new developments, providing the best solution for the local community.

With the UK aiming for net zero emissions by 2050, the requirements of Section 106 mean planning authorities now expect applications to include solutions that will reduce a development’s impact on local congestion and pollution. From dedicated on-site cars accessible only to residents of a development, to on-site cars available for all local residents, Ubeeqo can create a solution that is fit for purpose for your application.

A compelling solution

According to a recent study, each car club car replaces 18.5 private cars and car club members are more likely to walk or cycle as part of their daily routine. Car sharing can therefore have a very positive impact on the local area, reducing congestion, pollution and parking problems. For a new development scheme, incorporating a car club as part of the planning application could be a deciding factor in its favour.

The Ubeeqo Car Club allows residents to book cars via an app or online, and choose from electric, hybrid and petrol vehicles. Using RFID technology residents can unlock and lock the cars when they need them. For developers, the full turn-key service means that the car club can be integrated into their own scheme, without any need for involvement in its day-to-day management.

A dedicated Ubeeqo fleet team is on hand to manage all aspects of vehicle support, including maintenance and parts, servicing, insurance and claims, plus tyre changes and transfers to garages. Accident and roadside assistance can also be included if needed.

This new flexible solution not only helps property developers meet their Section 106 obligations but by providing alternative transport options to home buyers looking to reduce their impact on the environment, greatly increases their chances of being granted planning permission.
