Axis Transport Planning have worked with Morris Properties to secure a new access to serve future development land at Oteley Road, South Shrewsbury. Axis provided detailed highway advice to the project including the initial preparation, and further evolution, of access scheme drawings. Planning consent for the proposed highway access was secured in January 2018. Axis is currently working with Morris Property on a number of other sites in and around the West Midlands area, to support future development projects.
Axis Transport Planning formed a key member of the consultancy team that successfully secured planning consent for the development of a meat handling facility served off the A683 Heysham Bay Gateway Road, in Lancashire. Having originally been instructed to provide highways and transport advice for the site’s redevelopment in 2014, Axis Transport Planning was retained in 2015 as transport consultant by Althams Butchers.
The redevelopment of the site, which currently comprises a number of disused farm buildings with direct access to the A683, will see the construction of a c5,000sqm purpose-built facility which would enable the business to relocate from their existing facility in Morecambe. The new facility includes dedicated on-site parking and HGV servicing areas, the upgrade of the existing site access to accommodate a ghost-island right turn lane facility on the A683 and the delivery of a Travel Plan including for a staff minibus service.
Axis Transport Planning formed part of the team that has successfully secured planning consent for new student residential development on the site of the former Liverpool Road bus depot Chester City Centre. The Watkin Jones promoted scheme will deliver 323 student bed spaces, with Axis advising on site access and transport sustainability issues. The scheme received planning approval in late 2017 and is scheduled to begin construction on-site during 2018. Axis has been retained by Watkin Jones to advise on the detailed design of final site access arrangements and construction related traffic issues, including managing temporary traffic orders and hoardings.

The scheme received planning approval in early 2018.
