Transport Assessments & Transport Statements

At TPS we are experienced in the preparation of Transport Assessments and Transport Statements for developments across multiple market sectors, public and private, and various scales from single units to major, strategic residential developments, education provision, retail, commercial and employment opportunities.

We work closely with our clients to establish a comprehensive and appropriate brief based upon our knowledge, experience and application of Planning Practice Guidance (PPG), a suite of documents that set out and reflect the central tenet of the Government’s transport policy which is to reduce our reliance on the private car and to improve accessibility by sustainable modes.  The PPG cites, particularly, the need for Transport Assessments, Transport Statements and Travel Plans to accompany planning applications for developments, particularly major developments.

Transport Assessments

A Transport Assessment (TA) is a comprehensive and systematic process that sets out transport issues relating to a proposed development. It identifies what measures will be taken to deal with the anticipated transport impacts of the scheme and to improve accessibility and safety for all modes of travel, particularly for alternatives to the car such as walking, cycling and public transport.

Transport Statements

A Transport Statement (TS) is a scaled down version of a TA that would typically be required for smaller scale developments where the likely transport impact is limited.
