  • Servicing and Delivery Management Plans
  • Car Park Accumulation and Management Plans

Key Inputs / Outcomes

Given the number of sites AMA have worked upon, some of the key inputs and outcomes are listed below:

  • Identification of cost effective and commercially deliverable access proposals.
  • Working across the Yorkshire and Midlands regions with numerous Local Highway Authorities seeking successful working relationships given the number of sites being progressed.
  • Attending various public consultation events and managing the general public’s expectations, queries and concerns of new developments.
  • Consideration of the wider local highway network to identify likely off-site highways mitigation requirements and developer contributions, minimising these through technical assessment.
  • Providing commercially appropriate mitigation, where required, at planning submission stage which ensures minimal impact on scheme viability and delivery.
  • Working within the wider project team to ensure comprehensive design co-ordination with architectural and civil engineering consultants / detailed design proposals.
  • Managing the Road Safety Audit process through all stages (1 – 4) from concept to maintenance handover to LHAs, including Designers Responses.

  • Assisting statutory processes such as Stopping Up Orders and Public Rights of Way Diversion / Extinguishment for LHAs and Secretary for State (DfT).
