Take a look at some of the exciting projects delivered by our team

Spring Lodge, Guisborough

On behalf of Taylor Wimpey, TPS was appointed to develop a Transport Statement for this 50 unit residential scheme in Guisborough, North Yorkshire.

Despite receiving no objections from the Local Planning Authority highways team, and subsequently being recommended for approval, the scheme was refused permission at planning committee following fierce objections from a local residents group.

TPS was therefore required to prepare supporting evidence to be presented at appeal, which included detailed studies of:

·         Local and national design guides and specifications, including Manual for Streets, DMRB, and the local Redcar and Cleveland DG&S;

·         Required visibility splays and stopping site distances (SSDs) taking full account of recorded traffic speeds and the highways vertical and horizontal alignments; and

·         The sustainable accessibility of the proposed development, including access to local destinations such as schools, shops and healthcare.

To further support the application TPS was responsible for coordinating independent Road Safety Audits (RSAs), which included the preparation of a designers brief and subsequent designer’s responses.

Prior to reaching appeal the scheme was granted planning approval at re-submission.
