A Transport Statement reviews the impact of the development on the local highway system in relation to the impact of ‘person trips’ from the development. ‘Person trips’ are journeys by all forms of transport (walking/cycling/public transport and vehicles) and both the highway network and public transport facilities are reviewed in terms of their current and future suitability in relation to safety and general capacity. However, unlike Transport Assessments, they do not normally include junction or link modelling.
Where identified Transport Statements also include suggestions ‘in principle’ for local highway improvements and improvements to sustainable transport arrangements.
The need for either a Transport Statement or Transport Assessment is usually identified at an early stage by discussions with the Local Highway Authority.
What is a Transport Statement? When do you need one, what’s in the report and how is it compiled?
We have put together a dedicated website which you can view at http://www.transport-statement.co.uk this website details the answers to these questions and also includes detailed technical information about a Transport Statement.
