Our range of planning services extends to include expert advice in the following areas:
Transport Planning / Engineering
Transport assessments and travel plans are required to assess the impact of developments on the highway network and to encourage the use of more sustainable forms of transport. Here at JPP we can provide assessments of junction capacity utilising PICADY, ARCADY and TRANSYT. As part of the pre-planning assessment we can provide general arrangement junction designs in line with national or local guidance.
Drainage Strategies and Flood Risk Assessments
With the recent change in legislation all sites large and small require the use of Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUDs). JPP’s drainage strategies utilise SUDs throughout which comply with the latest legislation and meet client’s expectations.
Flood Risk Assessments are usually required for low risk sites larger than 1ha or smaller sites located within medium to high flood risk areas. JPP have worked on a variety of schemes in all flood risk zones and can provide 1D river modelling and flood compensation calculations.
Air Quality Impact Studies
JPP are able to carry out air quality surveys to identify any changes to and establish the potential impacts on air quality as a result of a proposed development.
Noise and Vibration Assessments
JPP are able to undertake Noise and Vibration assessments to estimate the effect on the noise climate that will occur as a result of a proposed development, both in terms of the noise and vibration created during the construction period and the changes in traffic flows that will result from the use of the development.
For developers looking to purchase a site we can assist in the appraisal process. We can assist in guiding the valuation of abnormal costs and therefore the viability of a site but also ensure that the basics can be achieved such as can the site be drained and can the site be accessed.
