Masterplans, Access & Movement

Effective access and movement are essential ingredients to achieving sustainable development, and are ideally integrated into land-use proposals and masterplans from the outset. 

We combine our our sustainable principles with the technical rigour needed to develop implementable visions for imaginative, accessible, and integrated places for people.

Masterplans Olympic Park

We prioritise creating liveable neighbourhoods and believe thoughtful design can ensure walking and cycling are natural choices for accessing key services.  Effective public transport provision and car sharing can also support longer trips, wherever possible.

By collaborating with planners, landscape architects, environmental specialists, engineers, property advisors and project managers; we ensure that sustainable movement is designed-in to all the development proposals we work on.

Berry Hill, Mansfield

The Lindhurst group turned to ITP to assist with the preparation of a sustainable public transport strategy and robust Travel Plan to support a major mixed-use development proposal in south Mansfield.  Our ability to establish an evidence-led strategy to underpin the proposed development, supported by effective negotiation skills, ensured the package of measures planned to cater for occupier travel demand was acceptable to the local planning and highways authorities.

We defined a series of incremental public transport service enhancements, triggered at different stages of development, which are to be implemented alongside planned local walk/cycle improvements. The Travel Plan will be critical to promoting these options to new residents of up to 1,700 houses, and up to 4,000 workers.  This will help ensure that new bus services become commercially viable, and are sustained, over the course of the development.

CEG: South Bank

With ambitious plans for a new city centre development in Leeds, ITP was appointed to advise CEG on how sustainable transport could make the site a more attractive place to live and work. Working alongside highway engineers, masterplanners and landscape architects, we developed an effective public transport strategy, walking and cycling strategy and accessibility strategy for the site. They are combined in an overarching Framework Travel Plan, which supports the Transport Assessment. 

Our approach is based on locally derived data, national best practice, and an understanding of cutting edge sustainable transport provision. Given the scale and significance of the proposed development, consultation with the local authorities, stakeholders and the community has been crucial. 

Thamesmead, Greenwich

ITP played a central role in ensuring walking, cycling, car sharing and public transport links were designed-in to the Tamesis Point development at Thamesmead in Greenwich. Jamie Wheway and Ian McGrane led our inputs, working alongside masterplanners and urban designers to ensure a holistic approach was adopted to positively influence mode share through the application of transit orientated development principles.

We also prepared the overall Regeneration Framework for Kent Thameside, comprising a Regeneration Strategy and Action Plan to establish the context for delivering key projects that supported subsequent development in the local area.  It defined a vision for the future of Kent Thameside, established a clear set of objectives and outcomes for regeneration, and identified key actions.  

Our work paved the way for the Fastrack Bus Rapid Transit system to serve the new development.
