Mott MacDonald to help with next phase of West Midlands Spatial Strategy Revision

Mott MacDonald has been commissioned by the West Midlands Regional Assembly to help review the infrastructure requirements for the latest revision to the West Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy. This Spatial Strategy forms part of the UK's national system of frameworks for planning land use and transportation to meet future regional economic development needs.

Mott MacDonald's project team will work with consultants from GVA Grimley as well as regional council planners and other statutory agencies to advise on infrastructure constraints and opportunities which may impact the success of the emerging preferred option which will be proposed to Government in late 2007. Once the preferred option has been selected, the project team will also assist with the development of an implementation plan.

As part of this process, the project team will consult with public and private sector stakeholders such as utility companies, transport providers and local authorities to help assess current systems and future requirements. The review will also build on the application of PRISM, a tool operated by Mott MacDonald for the West Midlands authorities which aids transport forecasting in the region and helps planners predict future travel patterns and congestion.

Jo Baker, Mott MacDonald's project manager said, "We're delighted to be selected for this prestigious project by the West Midlands Regional Assembly. Mott MacDonald and GVA Grimley have been providing transport and infrastructure planning in the Midlands for many years and we're confident that our bespoke data services and modelling tools already operational in the region will help the Assembly deliver an excellent strategy for the future."
