In today’s built environments, people need to be able to travel efficiently and safely, in order to live, work, and function as citizens in everyday life. Sweco’s transport planning team understand the need to balance the demand for access by car, while supporting and promoting more sustainable and active travel modes, in the development of transport infrastructure.
Our transport planning team has a wide skills base and knowledge and plays a key role in the regulatory and statutory processes in development planning, traffic engineering and transport modelling in the UK.
Our team covers every element of transport input to masterplans, representing the client, as part of the multi-disciplinary team. Working closely within the client brief, we prepare planning applications, including transport assessments, negotiating associated planning conditions and legal agreements, right through implementation to the purification of conditions and agreements.
We have built an enviable reputation in Local Development Planning and we contribute to the preparation of successful supplementary planning guidance and development frameworks. Members of the team are often called upon as expert witness at Public Inquiries and Planning Hearings.
