Transport Planning

Our Transport Planners provide expert advice on transport solutions for all modes of surface transport, across a wide range of projects in both the public and private sectors.

From the evaluation of the site access opportunities and the examination of the accessibility characteristics of prospective development sites to providing expert witness evidence at appeals, including public inquiries and the High Court, our transport planners work with the country’s leading developers and their project teams, to secure land allocations and implementable planning permissions for a range of development land uses throughout the United Kingdom.

What We Offer

Transport is always high on national and local political agendas, so requirements made of new developments become increasingly challenging: to provide schemes which maximise sustainable transport options in the wider area, have no severe impact on the highway network surrounding the site, and yet which contribute to the local or national economy.

 Our Transport Planners help developers identify the most relevant and  helpful transport and access measures for their specific development, balancing out these requirements to produce cost-effective solutions.

 Our teams are led by experts in their fields, and we  support individuals in furthering their professional development through further learning.

Whatever your requirements, Transport Planning Associates can work with you and your project team to deliver your development objectives.
