Land at Sturry and Broad Oak
Transport Planning and highway design support was provided to the promoters of development on Land at Sturry and Broad Oak, through to a successful allocation within the adopted Canterbury Local Plan for around 1000 dwellings, supported by delivery of a strategic infrastructure critical to the delivery of the Local Plan, in the form of the Sturry Link Road.
C&A were subsequently instructed to produce a VISSIM microsimulation model of the local network, to forecast the benefits of the proposed link road. This model was successfully used by Kent County Council to secure Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) funding and has been used as the basis of subsequently planning applications for the development, by Environ Design Sturry, Ward Home Kent (C&A’s instruction expanded to support flood risk, drainage and infrastructure planning for the full application) and KCC.
C&A’s innovative solutions for balancing the often competing objectives of landscape, ecology and drainage were acknowledged and subsequently presented during KCC’s drainage authorities workshops.
