ROYAL CONNAUGHT PARK
Royal Connaught Park comprises of a complex of Grade II listed buildings set in 100 acres of private parkland. The site was in use as the Royal Masonic School for Boys until 1977. In 2001, the site obtained planning consent for 307 dwellings which included refurbishment and works to the listed buildings as well as new dwellings. Phase 3 of Royal Connaught Park involves the development of 100 new units in four blocks on the northern section of the site.
The Transport Assessment highlighted the sustainability of the site and proposed additional sustainable travel solutions including an off-road pedestrian /cycle route. This route will provide safe cycle links from the development site to primary and secondary schools as well as to nearby National Cycle Route 6.
The Transport Assessment also included junction modelling and demonstrated that the trips to and from the proposed development will have a minimal effect on the local road network.
Origin have provided highways and transportation advice on the proposals including;
