Transport Plans

What is transport plan?

  • A transport impact assessment is undertaken by the applicant to establish whether or not the proposal will have a negative impact on transport and parking in the area surrounding the proposed development.
  • If the proposal is for a larger development such as a new school, a Transport Plan supporting acceptable, safe and sustainable travel movements including car and cycle parking arrangements may be required by the local authority.
  • Some local authorities may also require parking stress surveys to be undertaken – often these surveys have different names but essentially require similar information.

Who prepares transport plan and how?

  • Transport assessments and plans are usually carried out by transport engineers.
  • Information about the proposal is sent to a transport planner who will undertake either a desk top study or a site survey.
  • Once the survey is completed the transport planner/engineer usually produces a report or assessment with conclusions to satisfy the local Council’s transport policy criteria.
