Key Transport Consultants prepared Transport Assessments and Travel Plans to support the outline planning applications for both the relocation of Aveley Football Club for a development including clubhouse buildings, football pitches and parking and the proposed residential development of 114 dwellings on the existing football club site in Aveley, Essex.

The project team at KTC liaised with the client, project team and Thurrock Council as the local highway authority and prepared the transport documents for submission.

The proposals were separate applications but were very much dependent on the provision of each other. The sale of the land for the existing football club would help to fund the relocation and improved facilities for the new football club grounds and facilities.

The Transport Assessments included review of the site location and local transport network, and an accessibility audit of the local area by non-car modes, review of transport policy and highway safety and assessment of the traffic impact including junction modelling.

The Travel Plans set out travel plan objectives and strategies for the relevant sites. Appropriate sustainable travel measures and modal split targets were set out for both the residential development and for the football club.  Travel Plan measures for the football club included:

  • Appointment of a Travel Plan Coordinator.
  • Cycle parking and car parking management.
  • Changing, shower facilities and lockers.
  • Travel information on noticeboards, on the club website and in promotional documentation.
  • Management and encouragement of car sharing and group travel for matches.
  • Use of social media to coordinate travel arrangements.
