Project Overview

AMA were commissioned by Overgate Hospice to produce a Transport Statement (TS) and supporting Travel Plan (TP) in connection with the submission of a planning application for a new 16 in-patient unit and increase the existing hospice provision.

The development proposed and received consent which included the demolition of a neighbouring residential dwelling (Springwood House) and its associated gardens.

Key Inputs / Outcomes

  • Key to the LHA was the level of parking provision to be provided on site and that it could cater for the 45.8% increase in existing floor area on site, associated trip generation and parking demand.
  • AMA undertook surveys of existing staff and visitor arrival / departure times by transport mode to determine the existing trip generation and parking demand.
  • The proposed trip generation and parking demand were then increased pro-rata by the collated data to robustly argue that the development would not result in a negative impact and could cater for its own requirements solely on site.
  • Calderdale Highways accepted the proposed methodology and supported the scheme based on the case made by AMA, previously being opposed to the proposals based on perceived impact.
