Traffic and Transport

Transport Planning, Traffic Engineering, Assessment and Design services for public and private sectors

Scott White and Hookins provide a full range of Transport Planning, Traffic Engineering and Design services to both the private and public sectors.

Our team includes engineers and transport planners who have many years of experience working in the public and private sector. This experience enables us to provide specialist support for developers, project managers, architects, planning consultants, local authorities and government agencies.

We are skilled in working independently but also enjoy being part of a larger team.

Planning Applications and Appeals

We can provide our clients with creative and technical assistance at every stage of the planning process, from pre-application discussions with the local authority and the assessment of preliminary and existing designs, through design development and into outline or full planning.

We undertake parking assessments, transport assessments and transport statements, which demonstrate the likely impact of travel associated with a new development, and propose mitigation measures, where necessary. We can also provide post-application services and support planning appeals.

Travel Planning

We work with our clients to provide bespoke, robust and innovative Travel Plans that fulfil the requirements of local authorities and that can deliver sustainable change.

A travel plan typically includes ‘hard’ measures, such as changing the physical layout of a site or the surrounding highway, and ‘soft’ measures, such as policies, systems and procedures to influence travel behaviour.

Service and Delivery Traffic

Another aspect of travel planning includes the impact of service and delivery traffic. This can have a detrimental effect on the efficient operation of a site, as well as damaging the environment. 

To ensure effective management, our plans can be implemented for existing developments to improve their servicing arrangements, or can be incorporated as part of the design process for new developments.

Our team includes engineers and transport planners who have many years of experience working in the public and private sector.

Placemaking and Masterplanning

We have the skills, knowledge and the vision to lead and be strong advocates for high quality, collaborative Placemaking. 

We can provide broad concepts and principles which guide development and determine how to best fit traffic and transport needs into major development schemes, in harmony with the surrounding area, and fully integrating any solutions into the community with existing and proposed transport networks.

Studies and Surveys

We offer feasibility studies in order to identify opportunities and challenges, and appraise transport options. 

Studies can cover development proposals, area-wide or route management schemes. In addition, we also carry out traffic count surveys, interpret data to predict traffic growth, and can undertake detailed traffic and junction modelling, using industry standard technology.
