The Project

TPI produced a Transport Statement to support the scheme - focusing on adequate on-site parking provision and suitability of the access arrangements. Outline planning permission was successfully achieved in 2016.


Project Challenges

Essex County Council (ECC) parking standards require developments to implement parking spaces with relatively large dimensions (2.9 x 5.5 metres) compared to the norm (2.4 x 4.8 metres), unless in exceptional circumstances.

Project Solutions

TPI liaised with ECC and agreed on an appropriate parking provision. We carried out vehicle swept path to validate that the proposed layout was appropriate and we demonstrated, through use of the TRICS database, that parking demand can be accommodated on site. We were successfully able to prove that providing the larger size spaces would affect the overall level of parking provision, thus potentially pushing parking demand on-street.
