Project examples

Written statements to support Schedule 17 submissions

Written statements to support Schedule 17 submissions

Working with Systra supporting the HS2 rail project, we assisted with the production of Written Statements to support Schedule 17 submissions of the HS2 Act for the approval of plans and specifications for Diddington Cutting, Diddington Lane Overbridge and Shadow Brook Diddington Lane Culvert in the vicinity of Shadow Brook Valley.

Alongside the production of the Written Statements to support the Schedule 17 applications, the work involved project management, and working closely with statutory consultees to meet the necessary deadlines to ensure the plans are delivered as part of the pack production.

District Integrated Transport Strategies

District Integrated Transport Strategies

Our colleagues took the lead on writing District Integrated Transport Strategies for all of the District/Borough Councils in Staffordshire to support their Local Plans.

The strategies will align with the Local Transport Plan which is currently being prepared in Staffordshire and will aim to support the priorities outlined in the district/borough local plans. The strategies will become a key document in helping to secure funding for projects and developer contributions for transport infrastructure.

Each of the strategies are prepared working closely with key stakeholders and local planning authorities before they are finalised.

Section 106 and Local Plan consultations

Section 106 and Local Plan consultations

Whilst at Warwickshire County Council, our secondee took the lead on reviewing the existing S106 Planning Obligations policies and providing recommendations as to whether they are fit for purpose.

Another key part of the role was to respond to key consultations on behalf of the council from neighbouring planning authorities. This work included providing comments on Nationally Significant Infrastructure Planning applications.
