Let us apply our transport planning and highways expertise to your site appraisal or allocation.

Access and accessibility are key considerations in the early stages of the development planning process.

The identification and design of an appropriate access solution will often be the principal pre-requisite to determining the feasibility and viability of a development site.  The volume and movement of vehicular traffic, non-motorised road users, emergency vehicles and public transport will often define the type and quantum of development that can be accommodated.

TPS has a wealth of experience in site appraisals, their likely transport requirements and traffic impacts.  Through early engagement with the Design Team and the Highway Authorities, TPS will help to define, focus and promote the optimum, deliverable site arrangement and access proposal, whilst minimising abortive works and costs.  Whether it is to support the allocation of a development site in the Local Plan, support a planning application or to offer a robust rebuttal of planning objections, our application of highway design standards and transport related planning policy seeks to maximise the delivery of your development opportunities.

Typical services delivered include:

Site feasibility and access proposals

Access location, number and form

Accessibility for non-motorised road users
