A TA (or TS) is a planning related document that are usually prepared for developers or land owners and used by Local Authorities to inform the planning process; the TA is usually supported by the production of a Travel Plan (TP).
A TA identifies what measures will be taken to deal with the anticipated transport impacts of the proposed development, how to improve accessibility and safety for all modes of transport.
The "National Planning Policy Framework" (NPPF) encourages the promotion to sustainable development by providing travel alternatives to the car such as walking, cycling and public transport.
At mode transport planning we work closely with our clients and co-professionals to prepare Transport Assessments in support of planning applications. We are able to provide clear and practical advice on:
- size and scope of the TA/TS
- modal choice
- trip attraction
- trip distribution
- traffic assignment
- junction assessment
- internal road designs
- public transport appraisal
- parking arrangements
If you would like to discuss your requirements for a Transport Assessment, Transport Statement or Travel Plan please do not hesitate to contact one of our local offices or simply complete an enquiry form on our contact page.
