"We were really impressed how AWP got up to speed very quickly and supported us at our public exhibition explaining the traffic issues in terms that locals could understand, even if they didn’t agree!"

Millbay Marina


We helped Linden Homes secure planning permission for this residential development at Millbay Marina in Plymouth. The scheme expands the existing Marina Village with the addition of 3 new residential blocks providing a total of 142 additional high quality apartments with stunning views out to Plymouth Sound.

AWP were instructed to provide highways and access advice on the scheme and to produce a Transport Statement in support of the planning application. This included a detailed assessment of car parking arrangements and servicing paths to ensure the most efficient use of space. AWP also provided technical support and attendance at the public consultation exhibition.

We were subsequently appointed to work alongside Jeremy Benn Associates on detailed assessments of a complex wave wall proposal to defend the buildings against extreme weather events.  Coordination with the Environment Agency resulted in them being able to 'not object' to the application.

Planning permission was granted by Plymouth City Council in March 2015.
