Transport Planning

New development is built around transport infrastructure - whether it be pedestrian, cycle, road or rail modes - to create connected, accessible communities and developments.

Our dedicated team of chartered transport planners and engineers are specialists in assessing and designing sustainable transport networks that improve travel, keep society moving, and make new developments viable.

Transport planning services

We’re experts at producing Transport Assessments, Transport Statements and Highway Technical Notes for planning applications of all sizes, and in all sectors.

The transport planning team is also highly experienced in preparing transport-related input for Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA), local plan representations, land use and access feasibility studies and highway capacity studies.

Our success record at overcoming highway related reasons for refusal for planning and enforcement appeals is industry leading and we’re adept at negotiating highway related S106 obligations for new development.

Travel plans

In simple terms, a travel plan lays out efficient ways to reduce the number of single occupancy car journeys generated by any new development. 

Travel plans can be simple or detailed, and may be required early on in the planning process or throughout the lifetime of a development. 

Having produced hundreds of travel plans for more than two decades, our specialist team is intimately familiar with the varied requirements of both our private clients and the local authorities we work with.

Highway design and swept path assessments

Understanding the finer details of highway design standards, guidance and policy gives us an edge in our industry.

We’re extremely capable at producing professional highway improvement and site access designs. These can unlock new development potential on difficult sites. We regularly carry out on and off-site road and parking design using industry-standard autoCAD and swept path assessment software.

Our clients

Post-planning detailed design, sectional agreements and regulatory expertise

We’re able to assist clients right through the entire development post-planning process as well, including the discharge of highway-related planning conditions and managing detailed design package production for S278, S38 and S184 agreements. 

We’re also well versed in managing stopping up and diversion orders for highways and footpaths using a variety of regulatory mechanisms.

Technical expertise and other services

The technical experience of our capable team extends across a range of subjects, making us best placed to assist clients in sectors as varied as energy, waste and minerals, infrastructure, and regeneration. 

It’s well within our remit to procure road safety audits and carry out design team responses and accident appraisals.

Our team regularly prepares construction traffic management plans and conducts GIS-based accessibility analysis and highway pre-condition and dilapidation surveys. 

We also produce waste management strategies and provide traffic engineering input for air and noise quality assessments.
