Terence O'Rourke wins contract for Brighton park-and-ride

Consultancy to look at use of landscape features alongside environmental impact assessment at proposed locations

Landscape architecture practice and town planning consultancy Terence O’Rourke has won a contract to implement a park-and-ride scheme in Brighton, East Sussex, that will include landscaping. The firm will work with engineering consultancy Peter Brett, which will co-ordinate detailed feasibility studies and a planning application for Brighton & Hove Council. The park-and-ride site will be provided close to the A27/A23 junction with space for 1,500 vehicles. Brighton’s location brings its own problems, lying between the South Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the sea, with sensitive issues to be addressed at the potential locations. The first task for O’Rourke will be contributing to an early-stage environmental impact assessment for mid-November. It will then carry out assessments of landscape and visual effects alongside two proposed sites, as well as reviewing the cultural heritage of the areas. Terence O’Rourke director David Mulliner said: “We are confident we can resolve the planning and environmental issues to ensure a favourable outcome for all.”
