Transport Planning

The scheme comprised the residential redevelopment of the former St John’s Church Hall site, Friern Barnet Lane, Barnet, London.

The scheme proposed 20 new homes, together with a communal outdoor amenity space. A total of 14 No. on-site parking spaces are also provided within a courtyard, while 28 No. cycle parking spaces are enclosed within a secure store at ground level. Vehicular access is achieved via one of the existing access arrangements off Friern Barnet Lane.

Our Experts’ Input:

Working with the Design Team, we helped to achieve an efficient layout on a constrained site, whilst demonstrating through Swept Path Analysis that appropriate space is provided for all deliveries and servicing to take place on site.

Following submission of the planning application, officers from the LB Barnet requested that day and nighttime on-street parking surveys be carried out, owing to concerns regarding the potential for overspill parking.

Our transport consultants commissioned and subsequently provided the LB Barnet officers with the results of these surveys, which demonstrated that any overspill parking, were it to occur at all, would likely be minimal, and could be easily absorbed within the existing on-street parking stock.
