The former industrial site on the Leeds-Liverpool canal is located in the Holbeck Urban Village, a Conservation Area that features several listed buildings, including the elegant Italianate towers that lend the site its name.
The regeneration project will create a mixed-use, sustainable development providing commercial offices, affordable and private housing, retail, and leisure spaces.
TPS was appointed to provide all transport planning and highways advice and support. Our team prepared a comprehensive Transport Assessment, considering in particular the availability of parking with the area, and the likely impacts upon local highway safety and capacity.
Supporting the sustainable credentials of the site, and the limited availability of on-site parking, TPS was also appointed to prepare a bespoke Travel Plan Strategy, taking advantage of our in-depth knowledge of the subject area, and the local context. We prepared a bespoke strategy which secures a range of site specific measures, aimed at engaging with the multiple occupiers of the site and facilitating travel by a range of sustainable transport modes.
Working closely with the project architects our team were also required to undertake an iterative vehicle tracking process, feeding into the overall site layout and design, and ensuring that vehicular access could be accommodated within the condense and complicated site.
