Mayer Brown prepared a Transport Statement to demonstrate to council officers and members that highway and transport matters have been appropriately considered and addressed.
To investigate the impact of the proposed development, an understanding of the existing operations affecting the local highway network was required. Car parking surveys were undertaken externally identifying that additional vehicles can be accommodated on the local highway network. As determined within the Transport Statement, it is anticipated that any additional trip generation and on-street parking demand as a consequence of the development proposals are anticipated to be minimal. Therefore, the proposed development is unlikely to have any material impact on the operation of the local highway network.
The Transport Statement outlines the wide variety and availability of public transport within the vicinity of the site. It also shows excellent access to a comprehensive network of on-road cycle routes and pedestrian routes, highlighting the suitability of the site for the proposed development.
The Contribution Towards a Graduate Transport Planner’s Development
The development at Edmonton Church encouraged me as a graduate to look at the broader concept, implementing what the church aspires for the benefit of the surrounding community whilst following the appropriate local standards to ensure the feasibility of the development. The project furthered my knowledge and understanding of the transport industry focusing on the local environment to encourage the use of sustainable travel and ensure an appropriate transport strategy.
