Project: Thorpe Park
Development: Mixed Use Business Park
TPS are currently engaged by the Scarborough Development Group to provide travel plan and public transport strategy advice in support of change of use proposals for the Thorpe Park Business Park in Leeds.
The scheme, which has an existing permission for 1.2m sq ft of B1 office floorspace, would see Thorpe Park become one of the leading and most prestigious business parks in Europe with a mix of office, leisure, retail and food and drink uses.
Given the scale of the scheme there has, as would be expected, been a great deal of scrutiny placed upon the application from a combination of local councillors, residents and business groups, as well as Leeds City Council and the Highways Agency.
In support of the application TPS have prepared a Framework Travel Plan and Public Transport Strategy which set out a vision for sustainable travel at the site in the future. Building upon the extensive work completed in this area already at the site (which TPS have been delivering since 2000), a range of measures have been proposed which would see Thorpe Park become a destination of choice, regardless of travel mode.
Complementing the provision of our transport planning reports TPS have worked pro-actively with the wider development team at such as public consultation events to ensure that the sustainable travel agenda is suitably promoted to the widest range of stakeholders and interest groups.
