SCP have had detailed involvement with a range of leisure developments, ranging from new and refurbished hotels, to holiday lodges and football clubs. Our services have included preparing Transport Assessments and Travel Plans for a variety of developers as well as football clubs from non-league to Premiership, providing advice on a range of transport solutions for hotels, caravan parks, stadia and football training facilities.
FC United, Manchester
SCP assisted FC United in achieving planning permission for their new stadium, Broadhurst Park in Moston, which is now open. We advised the club on various aspects including off-site supporter car parking, encouragement of alternative modes of travel to the private car, site access design and internal layout.
Stoke City FC
SCP has worked with Stoke City FC providing full highways assistance for their new state-of-the-art training ground on the edge of Stoke.
SCP were retained to produce a Travel Plan for the Britannia Stadium, addressing the travel needs of supporters on matchdays, including the expansion of chartered bus services. SCP will also deliver the Travel Plan through the provision of coordinator services.
SCP were appointed to assist with the plans to save the grade II listed Brighton Hippodrome building in the historic heart of Brighton and regenerate it into a high quality mixed-use scheme comprising multi-screen cinema, retail and café/restaurant elements. SCP helped shape the design of the highway-related elements around the site (including public realm enhancements), and produced a Transport Statement to accompany the planning application.
The TS focussed on the numbers of pedestrian trips that would be attracted to the site in this part of the city centre, rather than the usual assessment of vehicular impact. This approach was agreed with the Local Highway Authority as part of a thorough scoping exercise before the planning application was submitted.
The pedestrian modelling exercise, along with the audit of the local pedestrian infrastructure near the site, identified the modest off-site footway works that would be fairly and reasonably required to be delivered, in accordance with adopted planning policy in the NPPF. This exercise assisted in minimising the overall costs associated with delivering the scheme and helped ensure that the funds to deliver this much needed restoration project are not spent unwisely or disproportionately.
Mixed-use development, Lamb’s Passage, London
SCP advised on all highways and transportation issues concerning the redevelopment of an existing surface car park with a mixed-use scheme comprising; 38 residential apartments ,a 61 bedroom hotel, office, restaurant, retail and gym uses, as well as new areas of public realm and alterations to existing access arrangements. SCP liaised closely with LB Islington and TfL throughout the preplanning process.
Hotel Indigo, City Buildings, Manchester
SCP advised Sanguine Hospitality on an 15 storey hotel which will form part of the Co-operative’s regeneration plans in Manchester. The development’s constraints are also strong sustainable benefits, these being Victoria station and an extending tram network. SCP prepared a Transport Assessment and Travel Plan as well as an ES transport chapter, while also advising on construction management and future servicing arrangements.
Hoole Hall Hotel
A new £8 million health club and spa has been created at the Hoole Hall Hotel. The extension is part of a £27.5 million project to transform the former Hoole Hall Manor into a stunning Doubletree by Hilton hotel, creating a truly sumptuous destination. SCP advised on highway and access issues, including preparing a Travel Plan for the hotel.
