CTP provides the following services
Specialist technical advice
CTP offers clients initial free consultations on proposals. CTP also engages with local authorities and other stakeholders on behalf of our clients. We aim to successfully guide our clients through the pre-application process.
Professional expert reports
Transport Assessments/Statements are required alongside planning applications, where proposals may have an impact on the highway network. CTP have provided high quality Transport Assessments for clients which have successfully been granted planning permission.
CONSTRUCTION LOGISTICS PLANS (CLP)
Working to reduce the impact of construction
Most new developments require the assessment of the proposed movement of construction vehicles, materials and workers to and from application sites. CTP are experienced in providing CLP's alongside Transport Assessments in accordance with local and regional planning policies.
DELIVERY AND SERVICING PLANS
Minimising the impact of delivery and servicing on the public highway and beyond
The delivery and servicing needs of new developments must be considered. Delivery and Servicing Plans enable organisations to effectively manage these activities and reduce congestion and conflict on the public highway.
Maximising active and sustainable modes of travel
Travel planning should be incorporated in to most development proposals. Seeking to decrease single vehicle occupancy and increase active and sustainable modes of travel is a priority at local and national level. CTP provides Travel Plans for all class uses and development proposals, including school travel plans and construction workers travel plans.
Aiding the promotion of cycling nationwide
The promotion of active transport is vital for improving the environment and health of the population. CTP offers various services relating to cycling such as Cycling Level of Service (CLoS) studies, CERs Audits, cycle lane and facilties design.
Assessing the impact of development on modes of public transportation
New developments can have significant impacts on the public transport network. CTP offers various public transport studies which help inform other assessments and highlights required mitigations.
Smart solutions for parking issues
Parking is often a contentious issue at the local level. CTP offers a wide range of services relating to parking for residents, local authorities and developers such as parking beat surveys and parking zone reviews.
Advising on s.278 and s.38 agreements
Works to the public highway and the adoption of new highways require s.278 and s.38 agreements respectively. CTP offers advice to our clients throughout the process of entering to completing the agreements.
TRAFFIC AND HIGHWAY ENGINEERING
Innovative and practical highway solutions
CTP offers innovative highway design solutions for a variety of environments and proposals. Highway interventions are designed for junctions, carriageways, footways, signals, lighting and various transport requirements.
Promoting active transport
New developments can increase the need for new provisions for pedestrians. Coupled with the desire to promote active transport and conform with Healthy Streets guidance, CTP offers a variety of assessments regarding pedestrian flows and environments such as Pedestrian Comfort Assessments and PERs Audits.
Forever seeking safety on our highways
Highway safety is paramount at CTP and is demonstrated in all of the services offered. CTP offers specific highway safety services such as Road Safety Audits.
We (Moreton, Bobbingworth and the Lavers Parish Council) appointed Capital Transport Limited to undertake a transport survey in response to a contentious planning application, which would have a very detrimental effect on the Parish. The report produced was absolutely first class, Michael demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the subject matter and was very professional. The Parish Council would definitely use Capital Transport again and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending their services
Julia Milovanovic (Parish Clerk)
Professional, knowledgeable, accommodating. Michael provided an absolutely brilliant service despite the many delays I had to force upon him. If needed I would definitely use his services again and recommend him to friends and family.
Akash Gandhi (Resident, Richmond upon Thames)
My first enquiry with CTP to provide their services to solve an urgent Planning Application requirement in Kent,
Michael’s response to our urgent need for a Transport Statement for a Banqueting Hall for 500 people.
His dedication to details, efficient services and constant communication throughout the process, he was able to provide a statement that enabled us to meet the planning requirement for a successful application to Swale Borough Council.
I would and have recommended Michael to other clients and he has become a part of a team of consultants who will be working on all my further projects that will require his service.
Steven Bogle (Architect, HP Design Studio)
Michael and I have been in contact since a non-controversial (in my and Michael's opinions) planning refusal earlier in 2019, and I am now in the process of a Planning Appeal which Michael has prepared. Throughout this process Michael has been very helpful and clear in his advice.
Robert Little (Resident, Richmond upon Thames)
Capital Transport Planning provided swift and expert technical assessments to support our planning application. Michael was very helpful and explained complicated technical concepts very clearly. Capital Transport Planning offers a great value service and we look forward to working with them regularly in future.
