Transport Planning

The Wandsworth Riverside Quarter masterplan comprises 504 residential dwellings and 8400sqm of commercial floor space on the 4 hectare former Shell Oil terminal site with frontage onto the River Thames in the London Borough of Wandsworth. Plot 6B is the final site to be developed and proposes some 172 dwellings in a stylish crescent-shaped building of steel and glass design at the eastern end of the site.

The planning application for a revision to the approved Plot 6B was submitted to increase the number of dwellings. The transport input included the preparation of the Transport Statement and design support for fire tender operation and emergency vehicle access as well as taxi drop off. The site experiences visitor parking issues and a report was prepared by TPI (now part of Motion) to recommend potential new locations for dedicated visitor parking spaces on the Wandsworth Riverside Quarter road network. Planning consent was granted by Wandsworth Council in 2017.

Input has been extended to preparing technical reports for the discharge of planning conditions including specification for Electric Vehicle Charging Points.

“Motion have a great depth of transport skills which helped in achieving planning approval for the final part of the Riverside Quarter scheme. The team worked well with our design team and the local authority highway officers to deliver our planning strategy.”
