The Project

Production of a Transport Statement to support the scheme, focusing on ensuring adequate parking provision both for the existing KFC unit and the proposed coffee POD. Outline planning permission was successfully achieved in 2015.


Project Challenges

The Highway Authority, North West Leicestershire were keen to ascertain whether two units could operate from the site with sufficient parking provision. Concern was also raised as to the ability for both operators to service the site safely post-development.

Project Solutions

TPI liaised with the Highway Authority to agree the scope of the work required. We carried out parking beat surveys of the existing car park operation and produced an assessment of the impact of the coffee POD unit through use of the TRICS database. This confirmed that the car park would operate within capacity. TPI's swept path analysis demonstrated how both KFC and the coffee POD could service the site safely, without conflicting with customers.
