A highway condition survey undertaken by Beacon Transport Planning on behalf of CEMEX UK has enabled a planning condition attached to a consent for minerals extraction, processing and infilling to be successfully discharged.
The survey, covering approximately 1.4km of highway, identified 67 existing highway defects and provides protection to the client against possible future claims for highway damage resulting from vehicle movements associated with the operation of the site.
The survey comprised a visual, above-ground inspection of the public highway, with a concise description, WGS co-ordinates, OSBG36 grid-referenced locations and photographic evidence recorded for each identified defect and presented within a survey report. Defect locations were additionally plotted using detailed OS mapping, shown by appended plans.
The survey was approved by the Highway Authority without amendment.
Beacon Transport Planning is pleased to be supporting Lovell Partnerships and Telford & Wrekin Council, via its development management company NuPlace, in delivering Phase 2 of the Council’s £56M Housing Investment Programme.
The programme is due to result in the construction of more than 400 homes for the private rental market, built upon Council-owned brownfield sites. This will both contribute towards meeting the area’s housing targets and also provide rental income to help fund Council services.
A planning application has been submitted for 92 new dwellings in Malinslee, for which Beacon Transport Planning undertook a full Transport Assessment and prepared a Residential Travel Plan following liaison with highway officers.
Beacon Transport Planning is providing on-going support in respect of further residential and mixed-use development proposals in Woodside and Madeley.
