Transport Assessment / Statement

The National Planning Policy Framework states that all developments that generate significant amounts of movement should be supported by a Transport Statement or Transport Assessment and submitted with a planning application for the development.

A Transport Assessment is a comprehensive and systematic process that sets out transport issues relating to a proposed development. It identifies what measures will be taken to deal with the anticipated transport impacts of the scheme.

In some cases, the transport issues arising out of a development proposal may not require a full Transport Assessment to inform the process adequately and identify suitable mitigation. In these instances, it has become common practice to produce a simplified report in the form of a Transport Statement.

We have extensive experience in the preparation of all aspects of Transport Assessments & Transport Statements, including scoping, policy interpretation, capacity assessment, infrastructure design, and negotiation of S106 and S278 agreements.
