A Transport Assessment is a systematic and comprehensive appraisal which sets out the transportation issues associated with a specific development. The Transport Assessment is apt to be needed by the local planning authority to indicate that a brand new development is renewable in transport terms and is compliant with local and national guidance on transportation policy. With years experience of the development area, Boston Transport Planning is able to bring its specialist knowledge and knowledge on the planning of Transport Assessment for major retail, non commercial, manufacturing, business office, leisure and hotel, mixed use and regeneration schemes.

We’re accustomed to doing a broad range of Transport Assessments from the easy to the complex, based on the scale of the improvement, the sensitivity in preparing terms and also the intricacies of the appropriate highways plus transportation problems. The Transport Assessments could be utilized together with the transportation section of an environmentally friendly Statement, and that is generally necessary for significant developments, and therefore are taken with adequate evidence to withstand the scrutiny of a possible public inquiry. The Transport Statement is a smaller variation of the Transport Assessments, which could be just as strong for small schemes.

The Transport Assessment also can identify mitigation measures just where they’re deemed required to help the project’s progress with the planning process. Our specialized experts are experienced in building appropriate mitigation actions in partnership with the regional authority’s Highways officers. Our experience in traffic engineering and layout, along with our understanding of the planning process as well as influences which may be brought to bear on it, provide us the capability to create a cost effective Travel Assessment which will play a vital component in securing planning consent on your development.
