Planning Approval on 40,000 sq ft Industrial Estate in Oldham


SCP are pleased to see yet another planning application has been approved. This time it’s a 40,000 sq ft warehouse in the Greenside Way industrial Park in Oldham.

The Mandale Group instructed SCP’s transport planning team earlier this year to provide a transport assessment for the planning application, which outlines the teams’ professional highway, traffic and transport advice for the industrial/commercial development.

The transport assessment includes the existing conditions at the site, the proposed layout plan and reviews the accessibility of the site through accessibility mapping and swept path analysis as well as the car parking accumulation assessment which indicates that there are 51 car parking bays as well as 20 cycle spaces.

Within the report SCP concluded that the development is compliant with local, regional and national policy as it will promote sustainable modes of travel with accessibility to the site available to those traveling by foot, bicycle and public transport which reduces the number of car trips to local facilities.

Our teams are highly experienced in supporting planning applications with highways advice, if you’re looking to submit a planning application for you development and need assistance, please do get in touch.
