DAVID LLOYD TENNIS CENTRE, GYLE PARK, EDINBURGH

Project Objective

Back

To undertake a Traffic Impact Assessment and produce a Proof Of Evidence (called a "Precognition" in Scotland and Annexes were called "Productions"); to represent David Lloyd Leisure and attend as Expert Witness at a Planning Inquiry.


Services provided:

  • Traffic Impact Assessment
  • Expert Witness

Project Description:

A Planning Application for a David Lloyd Tennis Centre (10600 sq m) had been refused by City of Edinburgh Council, on the grounds of Traffic Attraction. A successful argument was constructed, undertaking comparison surveys with other DLL sites throughut the UK. We showed that the likely trips would add approximately 0.8% to traffic levels on the A8 Gyle Road. We also showed that the proposed junction improvements would ensure adequate capacity and safety, notwithstanding the recently introduced "Greenways" Bus Lane Scheme.

Background:

  • Existing playing fields
  • Proposed David Lloyd Tennis Centre
  • Planning Permission had been refused by City of Edinburgh Council
