The former Tetley Brewery land had been acquired by our longstanding client Vastint. After providing initial technical due diligence work, our team was appointed transport consultant for this redevelopment project.
The current proposals centre around a new city park which will form the heart of the scheme and provide benefits to the new development and the South Bank area in general. The new park will be lined by a new residential district to the north and a mixed commercial area to the south, consisting of office, hotel and creative spaces.
Due to the site’s location, transport aspects of the masterplan development were critical. Our comprehensive transport planning consultancy included the successful negotiation of low on-site parking provision, as well as a concentration on public transport, park and ride, and pedestrian and cycling connections. We also provided strategic transport advice to support the wider aspiration to transform highway infrastructure through public realm improvements, green areas, shared spaces and pedestrian and cycle priorities right across the South Bank Development.
Council members on the city plans panel unanimously voted to approve the proposals, and following the receipt of planning consent, the project is now moving into the detailed planning and design stages
