Construction & Environmental Management Plans

5 04 2017

Construction Management Plans (CMP) are increasingly required by Local Authorities as a condition of the Development’s Planning Consent.  CMP aim to reduce the impact of the construction operations on the local area.

Following many traffic road accidents involving construction traffic, these Plans also aim to identify potential hazards and identify appropriate road safety measures.

The Stilwell Partnership’s experience in Traffic Management, Road Safety and Highway Engineering has proved particularly applicable to the production of CMPs.

In London, a Construction Logistics Plan (CLP) is required. A CLP should improve the safety, efficiency and reliability of deliveries to that location.  It should also identify unnecessary journeys, and deliveries that could be made by more sustainable transport modes, to help reduce congestion and minimise the environmental impact of freight activity.  Particular emphasis is placed on road safety.

  • Oakforest Properties Limited had Planning Permission in the London Borough of Barnet, for four 2-storey family dwellings together with the formation of hardstanding to provide 5 car parking spaces. Existing buildings on the site were to be demolished. Planning Conditions were satisfied by our CLP in July 2016.
  • This small urban residential development for a private client in Paradise Street, Cambridge, satisfied Planning Conditions in February 2017 with our CMP which included additional consideration of Dust Management,
  • Our CMP produced for a 3 ha Solar Farm near Titchfield, Fareham, for Jardin Smith International and their Planning Consultant WSP Planning and Architecture of Reigate, successfully obtain Planning Consent in March 2017.

In each case, we carried out an assessment of the volume of traffic and types of vehicle.  Using Autotrack to model the vehicle swept paths, we checked the manoeuvrability of the construction traffic to negotiate the site access.

For larger sites, we identify suitable access routes for construction traffic from all directions.

App C TSP-LFH-P3025-02 – CMP Proposed Route

A major part of the Construction Management Plan concentrates on road safety of the other road users around the access and along the directed routes.  Highway sightlines and road conditions are assessed along the main access routes to determine what measures can be introduced to minimise the road safety risks to other road users.

Our full methodology to prepare a CMP including a Dust Management Plan considers the following:

  • The Site and Surroundings
  • The General Construction Strategy and Logistics
  • Site Waste Minimisation Measures & Dust Generation
  • Construction Management and Site Controls
  • Vehicle Types Required and Delivery Procedures
  • Mitigation Measures for Construction Traffic
  • Security and Health & Safety
  • Details of Any Hoardings
  • Materials and Plant Storage
  • Implementation and Monitoring
  • Pedestrian and Cyclist Safety
  • Consultation with Residents, Neighbours and Office Users

We have the experience to efficiently produce an effective Construction Management Plan, to the satisfaction of the Local Authority, and practical needs of the Contractor.

Building For Schools: Resolving Highways & Traffic Issues

23 03 2017

We have added a new section to our website describing our specialist contribution to the Building for Schools Programme and our continuing efforts to improve Road Safety around schools.

The Stilwell Partnership have successfully supported many School Building projects throughout London and the South East.  Considering issues of road safety, traffic congestion and parking, we identify safe and sustainable access arrangements for pupils, parents, and staff.

Resolving Highways and Traffic issues may be the key to a successful Planning Consent.  Our contribution can smooth the project’s progress from initial Concept, through the Planning process, and onto successful Completion.

School Expansion

To help St Joseph Catholic Primary School achieve Planning Permission for their expansion in Ealing, our Transportation Assessment evaluated the traffic generation and car parking associated with the development.  We produced a School Travel Plan recommending sustainable transport measures to minimise the impact on the local road network.

Claremont Fan Court School in Esher, planned a new sports hall.  In addition to assessing the traffic impact we produced an engineering design solution for improvements to the access road, new car park and “section 278” improvements to the adjoining public highway.  To help implement their planned expansion we designed alterations to the site drainage network and carried out a Flood Risk Assessment.

Traffic and Parking Problems

Hart District Council in Hampshire was concerned with the continuing traffic and parking problems around a number of schools and the resulting impact on road safety.  We undertook site studies and proposed a range of traffic management measures to improve road safety in the area.

Stilwell Road Safety for Schools

The Stilwell Partnership has been innovating and pioneering road safety solutions for over 20 years.  Our not for profit social enterprise srsCULTUREforSchools aims to instil a lifetime of road safety culture to our children by improving attitudes towards the safety of self and others and encouraging safe behaviour in the road environment.

From Dorset to Fife, Britain’s lollipop army is mobilised to fight to save jobs, and children’s lives: Guardian.co.uk

16 02 2011

Unsettling newspaper articles of this nature appear frequently. They remind us that the UK roads are THE greatest threat to the life and limb of our children.

The article quotes: “In 2009, 12 under-18s died or were seriously injured on UK roads every day – 59% were on foot or bicycle. Although road deaths have been coming down and the UK has the second lowest road death rate in the EU, its child pedestrian death rate is worse than 10 other EU countries, and eight times higher than Sweden’s.”

Council threatens parents who let girl cross the road- Daily Mail

16 09 2010

Whatever your point of view regarding this news story, either sharing the council’s position or as an indignant parent, UK roads are THE greatest threat to the life and limb of our children.

Teaching road safety in schools has never been more relevant, but is it a luxury that we cannot afford in these austere times?

Ideally we need a low cost solution that develops a culture of road safety in children and fits directly into the national curriculum without increasing the load on teachers.

There is one such solution available, promoted by an independent non-profit making group of road safety specialists

srsCULTURE for schools embeds road safety within a school’s ethos, values and curriculum

School heads, teachers and governors can visit stilwellroadsafety.co.uk and try the free road safety calculator to see how their school performs against current guidelines
