VICTORIA QUARTER NEW BARNET – 300 APARTMENTS
COTTEE secured approval for this new large residential quarter in north London. The work involved a Transport Assessment and detailed negotiations with the London Borough and Transport for London to deliver a scheme with multi modal access to the road network, rail and bus services, cycle and pedestrian routes. A Pedestrian Environment Review System (PERS) and safety audits were undertaken.
ST JAMES DOVER – RETAIL, RESTAURANT, HOTEL AND LEISURE
St James is located a short distance from the Port of Dover and the town centre. COTTEE undertook Transport Master Planning through to a Compulsory Purchase Order / Stopping Up Order Inquiry culminating in a Transport Assessment which involved successful negotiations with Kent Highways and Highways England to deliver this key regeneration project for Dover. Key issues involved parking, servicing, and impact on the key A20 trunk road route into Dover port immediately adjacent to the site.

COTTEE provided Transport Planning advice from the Master Planning stage through to public consultation; analysis and design of off-site highway works (to Stage 1 Audit). We prepared a Transport Assessment, involving the design of the access and car parking; and operation of the site with the monitoring of the Travel Plan. The work involved negotiations with Norfolk County Council and Norwich City Council to deliver a successful outcome.

We have been involved in assessing the transport impact associated with various retirement villages throughout the country. This village involved 82 units together with on-site facilities. The Transport Statement and Travel Plan were produced based on surveys of similar villages built by the same client. The scheme was approved by the local council who have subsequently encouraged an extension of the village.
PARKWAY PRIMARY SCHOOL, THAMESMEAD
The expansion of this primary school doubled the number of pupils and included a Special Educational Needs unit. The work involved undertaking extensive junction and parking surveys to understand the implications of more pupils arriving and leaving at opening and closing times and in particular the potential increase in parking on local streets.
TRESHAM COLLEGE, WELLINGBOROUGH
The scheme involved redevelopment of the Wellingborough Campus with a view to accommodating up to 1000 students. Travel questionnaire surveys established modes of travel by staff and students. The Transport Statement considered the impacts within the town centre and the Travel Plan included measures to encourage sustainable travel modes.
