Education and Healthcare

The delivery of public services requires an inclusive and holistic approach to ensuring the needs of all site users are fully appreciated, and that new development is truly integrated. 

We help nurseries, schools, further & higher education institutions and healthcare trusts to maintain high levels of accessibility for staff, students, patients and visitors across a range of travel modes.

Reaside Clinic Birmingham Cropped

Reaside Clinic, Birmingham 

We helped Birmingham and Solihull NHS trust with their planning application for an expansion of Reaside Clinic in Rubery, Birmingham. With the existing clinic being retained for community uses, and the expansion increasing the number of beds at the site, a Transport Assessment and Framework Travel Plan were required to provide information on how this would affect the local highway network. 

ITP's team assessed the capacity of three junctions by applying 'first principles' modelling through the programs; PICADY, ARCADY and LinSig. This gave a full understanding of the potential impacts of the site and helped secure planning consent for the expansion.

Little Ripley Nursery, Sutton Coldfield

The Little Ripley Nursery in Sutton Coldfield wanted to apply for a change in use from a residential and special care unit to a children's day nursery. ITP was commissioned to support the planning application and prepare a Transport Assessment to analyse the impact the change in use would have on the highway network and parking provision. 

The site was contentious for residents and after the application was initially rejected, the decision was taken to appeal where ITP provided a Statement of Case with a strong technical argument supporting the sites sustainable location and current access, resulting planning permission being granted.
