PBA, now part of Stantec, collaborated with a team of consultants on an exciting urban regeneration scheme to reinvigorate the north-west corner of Peterborough city centre.
We undertook micro-simulation transport modelling and prepared the Transport Assessment and Travel Plan to support Hawksworth Securities plc in their planning application for a new urban quarter with city centre apartments, high-spec offices, a hotel and attractive public realm space surrounded by shops, bars restaurants and Peterborough’s first food hall. We worked with the wider consultant team and provided transport data to support their technical works and input into the masterplan design. Our key task was to update the existing micro-simulation model transport model for the site and advise on the impact of the scheme on the neighbouring shopping centre car parks and bus station.
PBA continued to support the application post submission and negotiated off-site highway works and mitigation schemes to reach an agreement with Peterborough City Council. The proposed scheme received unanimous support from members of the planning committee and was granted consent in November 2018.
