MLM provided transport planning services to support a planning application for the development of Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls in the Royal Borough of Greenwich – a new 8 form entry school for 1,200 students with 120 staff.

An assessment of baseline transport conditions was undertaken, which included an audit of existing multi-modal transport infrastructure. The transport planning team worked closely with the project architect to provide traffic engineering input to the site layout. This included vehicle access, circulation and parking with supporting vehicle swept path analysis. Advice was also provided to develop the refuse collection and servicing strategy. An assessment of the level of car and cycle parking required for staff and visitors was undertaken – with reference to parking standards contained within The London Plan and Census car ownership data.

The Transport Assessment involved an assessment of trip generation, distribution, assignment and modal share and assessed potential multi-modal transport impacts associated with the development. A Sustainable Travel Plan was prepared mitigate the predicted transport impact of the development. Post-application advice was provided to the Client regarding draft planning conditions and draft S.106 Agreement Heads of Terms relating to transport.

Following planning consent, MLM provided Detailed Design services for off-site transport infrastructure and obtained technical approval from Royal Borough of Greenwich.
