The Challenge of Highways and Transport Matters

Mayer Brown was appointed by Angle Property, site owners and Property Development Company. Our role was to advise them on Highways and Transport Matters relating to the development of this site to provide a new supermarket. Key issues to be addressed included ensuring that the proposals were accessible, by foot and by cycle to Olney Town Centre and the local community.

We also needed to demonstrate to Milton Keynes Council’s Highways Team, through the production of a detailed Transport Assessment and Road Safety Audits, that the proposals could be integrated into the existing highway infrastructure without affecting highway capacity and safety. A further consideration was the need to accommodate and safeguard future development of an adjacent site, also owned by Angle Property, and a committed residential development site situated on the southern side of Lavendon Road.

Proposal Success Achieved by Mayer Brown’s Expertise

By working closely with our client’s development team and Milton Keynes Council’s Highways Department throughout the planning and Section 278 highways design process, the proposals received full planning consent. Construction work has started on site.

The proposals include a new pedestrian crossing and bus stop facilities on Lavendon Road, There are also extensions to the local MKC Redway Cycle Routes, providing cycle access direct to the site.

The store will be operated by Sainsbury’s and is due to open Autumn 2019.
