Summary: Most development proposals of any significance require planning permission, and highway matters are an important factor in determining planning applications. It is therefore essential to the success of a development that the associated traffic and highway matters are properly addressed. Access arrangements are critical in this regard, as are car parking and servicing arrangements. They are also important for realising the commercial potential of a development scheme. This book examines the principles adopted by traffic and highway engineers when devising or reviewing proposals for access and other traffic matters. It brings together data from a wide variety of source documents and provides practical guidance to assist interpretation and application. It considers the problems of developing more difficult sites - important now that the more straightforward sites have already been developed - and explains how access issues can be addressed to produce a more economic outcome. The book is aimed at the non-specialist, such as architects, surveyors and town planners, to enable them to proceed with simple, uncomplicated highway designs, or to identify where expert advice is necessary. It will also be of help to traffic and highway engineers and to students in that field.
