Case Study

The Scheme

Demolition of existing commercial buildings and construction of 6 x 4 bedroom and 3 x 5 bedroom two storey detached houses with associated car parking and landscaping (16/02067/FULL1).

The existing access was considered to be sub-standard to serve the lawful commercial uses on site. A major part of the scheme was related to the access, which was to be widened as part of the proposals.

  • In July 2016, the scheme was refused by LBB (one highways related reason with regard to the site access and the impact on the free flow of traffic and conditions of general safety);
  • In January 2016, LBB removed the highways reason for refusal;
  • In February 2017, the scheme went to Appeal; and,
  • In March 2017, the Appeal was allowed.

Our Role

As part of the application, TPI produced:

  • May 2016 – A Transport Statement focusing on accessibility, resident and visitor car parking, trip generation, servicing and refuse collection, access design and vehicle tracking using AutoTrack; and,
  • December 2016 to February 2017 – A Highways Rebuttal Statement to LBB's reason for refusal incorporating a response to an alternative commercial scheme, a Highways Rebuttal Statement to LBB&apos:s viability assessment, proposed widened access drawings and TPI also attended the Appeal.

The Outcome

The Appeal was allowed in March 2017. With regard to traffic flows, the Inspector stated that “having considered the likely number of trips generated by the proposal, I am satisfied these would be likely to be less and involve smaller vehicles than a commercial use of the site.”
