We were appointed by Telereal Trillium Ltd to provide transport and highways advice in relation to the proposed partial redevelopment of the Royal Mail depot site in Ashford, Surrey. The proposals consisted of 6 houses and 31 apartments in this urban location.
A detailed scoping exercise was undertaken with the highway authority as soon as we were appointed, to ensure we provided our client with maximum certainty from a highway perspective. During the project we provided the client with swept path analysis to provide assurance to neighbours, whilst preparing the Transport Statement and Travel Statement in support of the application.
We demonstrated that the proposed vehicular access could provide suitable visibility splays and that the detailed layout being applied for catered for service and delivery vehicles as appropriate. A comprehensive review was undertaken of local amenities as well as infrastructure for all modes of transport, thereby providing the highway authority the confidence to recommend the application for approval.
The proposals were granted planning approval, and the dwellings are due to be marketed.
