Transport Assessments and travel plans
We prepare Transport Assessments and Transport Statements in accordance with national guidance, Transport for London (including Healthy Streets), and local planning and highway authority published requirements. We have considerable experience working on all scales and types (both private and public) of development projects across the country.
Transport Assessments and Transport Statements will consider existing or extant uses, existing traffic conditions, proposed development uses, and resultant traffic impact. We will then suggest suitable mitigation measures to overcome any problem if necessary.
A Travel Plan is often required to support a planning application (especially as we head toward more sustainable travel options), a provides a suite of initiatives and measures to promote sustainable transport options such as cycling, walking, carsharing and public transport and to encourage people to use these options in order to reduce car bourne journeys.
As well as preparing Travel Plans for all types of developments across the country, we also act as Travel Plan Coordinator’s for our clients, administering the agreed travel plan measures, travel surveys and Monitoring Reports for submission to local planning authorities.
"I commissioned YES Engineering, on behalf of a group of local residents, to produce a traffic study report relating to a planning application that had been submitted to Bromley Council. I had previously employed YES Engineering in 2009. Both in 2009 and 2017, we benefited from the services of a highly professional team. The YES team responded quickly throughout and went out of their way to guide us through the planning application system. The concerns of the residents were found to be well founded in the light of the YES Engineering report. Based on our experience, I would be pleased to recommend YES Engineering."
"Thank you for the extra time and effort you put into achieving a successful outcome on the planning consent. You are the transport consultant of choice as you achieve results and are always available to provide advice. I look forward to working with you again shortly."
"Having received a number of fee proposals for travel and transport reports for one of our new developments, I chose to accept YES Engineering's proposal as it was clear and comprehensive, and also because they had been willing and helpful in giving some initial informal advice. From the start, YES Engineering were a pleasure to deal with. Emails and phone calls were replied to promptly and always contained appropriate answers or relevant information. The work was carried out to a high standard and to the timescale agreed. I will have no hesitation to use their services again with other upcoming reports."
