Blairland Farm, Dalry
ECS were commissioned to undertake a Transport Assessment to support a planning application for 200 residential units on land within Blairland Farm, Dalry. The site is located between existing residential properties and the Ayrshire railway line which presented challenges for securing multiple access points to the site as encouraged by Designing Streets Policy. ECS designed two access junctions and associated traffic calming which gained the support of North Ayrshire Council Roads Department and formed the basis of input to the concept masterplan layout. The application gained consent in June 2015 with minimal conditions.
