Chelmsford City Council has been part of Essex County Council Sustainable Travel Network for many years, receiving great support towards encouraging active travel across the council. The support from STEN has been fantastic and has helped us to achieve a gold accreditation with Modeshift STARS. We would highly recommend this service to any organisation looking to enhance and improve their staff travel plan.
