The Challenge

SYSTRA Ltd were appointed to support the redevelopment of the former Stagecoach Bus Depot, Swindon to provide a total of 45 residential units. Given that the site is located in a Conservation Area it was key to deliver a design that maximized the development potential of the site whilst still being sympathetic to the surroundings.

SYSTRA's Role

SYSTRA produced a Transport Statement for both the original plans and the revised plans at the site. It was important to note the sustainability of the site in relation to the town centre and the local centre of Old Town.  The Transport Statement undertook an assessment of the proposed peak hour trip generation and compared it to the previous use of the site as a Bus Depot.

The scheme received approval at committee in August 2018.
