The site was subject to a previous application to utilise and extend the existing car showroom building to form a foodstore, which was granted planning consent in 2014.
The new scheme comprises the demolition of the existing building and construction of a larger, first floor foodstore with car parking provided at ground level.
TPI, under our previous Gateway TSP banner, was instructed prior to the planning application submission to prepare the Transport Assessment and Travel Plan reports
accompanying this proposal. In addition, the initial designs for the Broadway environment were created, involving relocation of a bus stop and reshaping the length
of Broadway. The Transport Assessment also involved Linsig modelling of the signalised junctions at each end of Broadway. Following the application submission,
GTSP addressed all comments raised by the Highway Officers at LB Bexley to ensure the scheme was recommended for approval.
Following the grant of planning consent, TPI undertook the detailed highway design work and led the s278 negotiations. Following technical approval, TPI liaised
with the site contractors to ensure all access works were completed to enable the store to open on schedule.
