Construction Traffic Management Plans

The planning system is getting more complicated and more onerous. The amount and detail that needs to be submitted with an application is constantly changing and stretching the remit of the planning system. This is particularly the case for clients wishing to build basements in central London. Most central London authorities now require a document that details how the construction traffic associated with a basement dig will be managed to and from the site.

Typically such documents would be done by a contractor. However most people don’t employ a contractor before they have planning permission! To help our clients with this tricky chicken and egg situation, ADL Planning have secured the services of a highly capable highway engineer as part of our team and are pleased to announce that we now provide traffic management reports to complement our existing planning work.

Each document includes a written report in the format requested by the relevant local authority, route to site plans, vehicle tracking plans, site layout and parking suspension plans and hoarding elevations plans.

We are happy to provide these documents as a supplement to being involved in your project as your Planning Consultants, or as a standalone service separate from any involvement in the traditional planning-side. Whether we are employed as your Planning Consultant’s or not, be confident that your construction traffic report will have been prepared and overseen by an experienced road/traffic professional as well as our planning team.


We have prepared successful Traffic Management Plans for clients across central London encompassing Westminster City Council, Brent Council, Wandsworth Council and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. These sites have involved complex issues such as listed buildings, mews properties with restricted access, full site demolitions, narrow roads, the requirement for specialist vehicles and non-standard construction techniques.

ADL Planning can offer a unique blend of construction, highway and planning experience within a responsive and flexible environment. We are proud that we are a small business that takes the time to ensure all projects are personally overseen by senior partners. Our first-hand knowledge of Kensington and Chelsea Council has proved invaluable in allowing us to be one of the first businesses to offer Traffic Management Plans that meet the rigorous requirements of the authority.
