Stage 1: Assessing the Travel Characteristics of a Development
The role of the Transport Assessment is to provide Planning Service and Roads Service with a good understanding of how the transport aspects of the development will function. The first stage to be undertaken, possibly before the scoping discussions, is a site visit.
Stage 1 contains the following sub categories:
- The site visit
- Measurement of accessibility to and from the site
- Estimating the travel generated and likely modal split
