Green light means go
Development planning is at the very core of our business and since the turn of the year we have helped to secure planning consent on a number of projects, providing transport assessments, transport statements and highway design on behalf of clients including St. Modwen, Bloor Homes, Lioncourt, Inland Homes Homes and JG Chatham Ltd.read more...
For Kitchener Barracks, the mixed use, residential led scheme in Chatham Kent on behalf of JG Chatham Ltd we provided a transport assessment using GIS to demonstrate the sustainable credentials of the site. We also undertook a detailed assessment of the traffic impact of the proposals on the highway network within Chatham Town Centre and provided detailed assistance to the project team to achieve a deliverable scheme which overcame significant level differences on the site.
Planning consent was granted in May for the residential led mixed-use development which will comprise up to 260 dwellings and commercial space.
Elsewhere, we have been working with Lioncourt Homes since 2012, in relation to the development of land at Keresley which falls within the Greenbelt. The development proposals include up to 800 dwellings, a primary school, a local centre and community uses. We successfully secured ‘no objection’ from both Coventry City Council and Warwickshire County Council as well as the Highways Agency.
Our services included the preparation of written representations for the core strategy and the preparation of a transport assessment, framework travel plan and a mitigation strategy to accompany an outline planning application.
The transport assessment alone included our full range of services providing advice on the vehicle access strategy, internal layout, public transport strategy and business case, junction modelling and design and travel planning.
In March we were part of a team that helped to secure planning consent for the second phase of St. Modwen’s Meon Vale community near Stratford-upon-Avon.
PJA prepared all the transport planning inputs to the project, including detailed PARAMICS modelling of town centre highway improvements and specifying bus service enhancements. PJA director Nigel Millington addressed the committee and responded to the various transport related questions.
Consent was granted for up to 550 more family homes and a primary school as well as highway improvements and the relocation of a holiday village of self-catering lodges, holiday homes and caravan pitches.
