TPHS have provided technical inputs to a number of planning applications for children’s nurseries over the last few years. The work has been based on surveys at existing nurseries, both in terms of drop-off in general and mode share of parents dropping and collecting their child. TPHS have a broad knowledge base of the operation of the key drop-off parking and of the patterns of arrivals and departures by all modes at these facilities. The work included detailed assessment of the local catchment and census data to develop the argument for limited on-site drop-off and car use at the sites. We have successfully provided the following inputs on schemes:

  • AutoTRACK and design of drop-off
  • Preparation of Transport Assessment and Travel Plan
  • Negotiation of works and reports with highway authorities
  • Section 106 advice to client team

A selection of projects which have been undertaken and are either on-site under construction or completed and occupied are:-
