Brief

Cotswold Transport Planning were appointed by Boo Homes to provide the necessary transportation inputs and advice in order to achieve technical approval for highway improvement works associated with a residential development of 28 dwellings.

The scheme had received planning permission and consisted of a redevelopment of an existing industrial estate.

Issues & Solutions

Cotswold Transport Planning liaised with the client and design team to put together a package of highway works drawings and information to submit to the Local Highway Authority, Gloucestershire County Council, in order to obtain technical approval for the junction improvement works, which will allow the client to undertake the works on the public highway.

Cotswold Transport Planning produced highway construction detail drawings, a legal agreement drawing, a Stage 2 Road Safety and Mobility Audit, a Designer’s Response to the audit and submitted a suite of information to meet the Council’s validation requirements. We also liaised with the client’s contractor to ensure that they were approved to work on the public highway and met the Council’s insurance requirements. Finally, we advised the client on all other aspects of highway works throughout the process, such as booking road space and providing traffic management.

Results

Technical approval was granted in a timely fashion.
