Design success at Newton with Scales, Preston


As designers, we enjoy looking back at our successful designs. A residential scheme at Newton with Scales, Preston obtained approval from Lancashire County Council for the S278 works which were completed in September 2022.

SCP was appointed by Hollins Homes as the junction scheme was required to discharge a condition relating to the new residential development at Woodlands.

Our design team, led by Jamie Larkin, a senior engineer in our Manchester office, produced a drawing package for the works including a traffic signal design to obtain a Section 278 agreement with the Council.

Jamie commented, “Seeing the finished product is always rewarding as we spend so much time looking at the 2D version within the design package and after months of working with the client I got a chance to be on-site and take a look at the new junction that the team and I worked on.”

Testimony from the client reads “… From the outset through to completion of the works, Jamie ensured thorough and prompt communication with us. There were a number of setbacks and alterations during the process sought by Highways Authority which SCP fought on our behalf until such point alternative designs had to be commenced which were done as efficiently as possible… “

If you have a proposed development with highways-related planning conditions get in touch and we’ll see how our team can support you.
