Transport

As the UK population continues to increase and cars become more affordable, the local and national transport networks equally continue to struggle with capacity, and hence satisfying the authorities that new development can be accommodated without local improvements is becoming increasingly difficult. The integration of Green Travel Plans, promotes a change in approach from the population and challenges their existing travel patterns, and strives towards a greener more integrated approach. We can offer up front advice on the likely impacts of any development.

Why do you need us?

We provide our Clients with the required Transport Assessment and Travel Plan reports in support of their Planning Applications and then follow through with the design and detailing of the required highway works.

Most new developments generate more traffic in the local road network. Therefore to secure a Planning Approval a Transport Assessment (TA) needs to be submitted to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Highway Authority that any additional traffic will not create congestion on the local highway network. A Travel Plan (TP) is also required which encourages the end users to adopt sustainable modes of transport to get them to and from their destination. These are key documents in securing Planning Permission and a TA that is of a high standard will help minimise the need for costly off-site highway improvement works and also help address the fears of many of the objectors to the application. We are therefore able to help secure the most cost effective highway solution to secure Planning Approval and are still there to deliver that solution on site – we remain responsible from inception to completion

When do you need us?

Developers, House Builders, Estate Managers – If you wish to secure Planning Permission for any type of new development then you need to contact us as soon you have decided to proceed.

Contractors – If you are a Contractor then as soon as you have decided to tender for a contract which requires you to discharge any highway related Planning Conditions or any S278 or S38 Highway Agreements – preferably before the tender comes out to give us as much time as possible to help you win it.
