What’s Included in a Transport Scoping Study?

The Transport Scoping Study pre-planning consultation areas to be addressed usually include:

  • Planning policy context and the type/scale of development
  • Provisional means of access, servicing and parking
  • Previous land use and historic traffic generation from the development site
  • Person trip generations and trip distribution methodologies and/or assumptions
  • Catchments or study area for the proposed development
  • Identify committed development
    • This is development in the vicinity of the site which has planning consent but is not yet built or operational and would have a material impact on local traffic conditions
  • Scope of road accident investigation. Personal Injury Accident records are obtained from the local recording authority this information usually incurs an administration charge
  • Existing traffic flows and network peak hour periods
  • Assessment years – year of opening and horizon year(s) including traffic growth factors from the traffic count year to the assessment years, to take account of traffic growth on the highway network.
