A Transport Assessment is a comprehensive and systematic process that sets out the transport issues relating to a proposed development. 

 

A Transport Assessment would normally seek to demonstrate that: the proposed site access arrangements will provide safe and suitable access for all users.

  • the proposed parking and servicing arrangements will meet the needs of the development.

  • the site location is suitable for the type of development proposed.

  • appropriate opportunities to promote sustainable transport modes can be, or have been, taken up, given the type of development and its location.

  • there will be no residual highway safety problem because of the proposed development.

  • any significant impacts from the development on the transport network in terms of capacity and congestion, or on highway safety, can be mitigated to an acceptable degree.

  • the development will not have a “severe” impact on the local highway network.

  • the proposed development complies with relevant local and national transport planning policies.

 

A Transport Assessment for a large development will often be accompanied by a Travel Plan.

Travel Plan is prepared to promote and encourage sustainable modes of travel in preference to the private car. It identifies the measures required to improve accessibility and safety for all modes of travel, particularly for alternatives to the car such as walking, cycling and public transport.

How much does a Transport Assessment cost?

The cost of a Transport Assessment varies depending upon the scope, and complexity, of the issues to be covered.

 

THaT Consultancy always aim to ensure that the scope of the Transport Assessment is the minimum necessary to satisfy the local authority’s requirements.

 

Our fees for producing a Transport Assessment start at £2500 plus VAT.

 

Our fees are agreed with the Client before we start work. We give realistic fee proposals at the onset and stick to them.
