Access Audits & Transport Assessments

Foxley Tagg Planning Ltd have successfully carried out numerous Transport Audit Projects across the country in partnership with various Local Authorities and Universities.

The Transport Audit projects have looked at the issue of accessibility within the ‘public realm’, bespoke research projects have been designed to deliver a comprehensive information base, which aids local authorities in developing their walking and cycling strategies.

The Access Audit aims to identify barriers to pedestrian and cycle movement in and around a particular town centre using flow counts, user surveys/interviews with pedestrians & cyclists and comprehensive analysis of the main pedestrian/cycle routes to complement the main access audit work.

The Access Audit work makes a valuable contribution to the Local Transport Plan (LTP) process & policies, and is an effective tool to prioritise budgets. It also supports other funding streams such as regeneration strategies and can be used to assist in the production of mobility maps/guides and other promotional material.

To date we have carried out Access Audits in Bath, Taunton, Cheltenham and Gloucester and for Northamptonshire County Cricket Club.
