The Transport Team at Pegasus Group successfully supported in securing the full planning permission for the formation of a gas powered standby generation plant off the A5, in Oswestry. This included for detailed negotiations with Highways England to remove its holding direction.
Our team prepared a Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) and associated drawings and Walking Cycling and Horse-Riding Assessment and Review (WCHAR) that demonstrated that a safe and suitable access strategy could be provided to serve the development.
The key issue associated with the scheme was agreeing with Highways England that a suitable access could be provided to the serve the site during both its construction and operation periods. This including for the preparing of drawings and supporting correspondence confirming that the access has been deisgned in accordance with guidance set out in the Design Manual for Road and Bridges , whilst also addressing the local constraints associated the adopted highway extents, vegetation and planting and third party land.
The Pegasus Transport successfully addressed all the issues associated with the access, which was ultimately giving a clean bill of health further to a Stage 1 Road Safety Audit and then finally the removal of the Highways England holding objection.
