Beacon Transport Planning is led by Simon Emson (BEng MCIHT MILT), who has 20 years of experience of transport planning, traffic engineering and highway development. His experience ranges from acting as an agent for parking alterations to an individual dwelling to assessing major retail schemes, mixed-use developments, urban extensions and new settlements.  He has prepared evidence for various planning inquiries and appeals and has supported the promotion of sites for allocation in local plans.

The focus of the consultancy is development planning, primarily in support of developers, other private clients and allied professionals. We cover all forms of development and business sectors, with particular focus upon residential development and minerals, waste, recycling and energy schemes.

We are able to draw upon a history of success in negotiating the planning system and offer a personal service, providing clients with thorough advice via a single point of contact in a timely and cost-effective manner.

At Beacon Transport Planning we prefer to focus only on our area of expertise: transport planning, traffic engineering and highways consultancy. We don’t seek to extend beyond our capabilities, simply front-up work that has been sub-contracted to others or sell associated services.  We do however have a range of trusted contacts within allied disciplines and are happy to recommend other professionals as and if required.
