The owners of the mews house sought planning consent to create a light well within the rear garden of the property to serve an existing basement conversion. TPI (now part of Motion) was responsible for preparing a final Construction Traffic Management Plan that took into consideration the local site constraints of the Mews. The broad methodology included consultation with the relevant neighbours and Resident Associations, the use of narrow bodied vehicles (i.e. Mitsibushi Canter), no on-site hoarding, site-mixed concrete, a ‘wait-and-load’ strategy and no skips on the public highway. A minimum of 3m width was maintained to allow vehicles to pass. The planning condition was subsequently discharged in January 2017.
“We approached TPI (now part of Motion) to assist in compiling a full Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) to discharge a planning condition associated with the creation of a lightwell to serve a basement conversion. They produced the report in good time to the satisfaction of the local planning authority (Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea), who are notoriously difficult to reach agreement with in respect of CTMPs.”
