The site has excellent connectivity to public transport, cycle paths and bus routes, as well as being reachable by foot from several bustling town centres.

Visitors to the completed building will be encouraged to use methods of transport other than car use when travelling to the site. With this in mind, car parking is being reduced on site and there will be no coach drop offs.

The management of construction traffic will be a priority throughout the procurement of the building.

The access proposals have been further developed to reduce the traffic to the aparthotel.

  • All deliveries and taxis to be routed into the service yard contained within the existing building.

  • Bollards proposed to avoid vehicular movement to hotel.

  • Pedestrian route moved away from residential garden boundaries and enclosed with 4m high acoustic fence.

  • Considered hard-scaping design proposed to mitigate potential noise created by pedestrian footfall.
