Following the withdrawal, in October 2014, of The Department for Transport Document (March 2007) ‘Guidance on Transport Assessment’ guidance on the preparation of supporting documentation in highway assessment terms can be found in the Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) suite of documents and in particular in “Travel Plans, Transport Assessments and Statements in decision taking”. This guidance is intended to assist all stakeholders in determining whether an assessment may be required and, if so, what level and scope that assessment should include.
It is important to agree at an early stage of the pre-planning submission what level of assessment is required, which should be with the Local Planning Authority and National Highways if the development is likely to have an impact on the Strategic Highway Network.
