TRAFFIC ASPECTS OF DIY CENTRES

The past few years have witnessed a large growth in the provision of DIY (do it yourself) and home improvement centres arising from an interest shown by the general public in leisure activities, and the need to make substantial savings on home improvement costs. Such developments generate considerable amounts of traffic and confront local authorities with a series of environmental and traffic issues which must be satisfactorily resolved before approval can be granted to any planning application submitted by a prospective developer. Design guidelines, relating to the vehicle and shopper characteristics associated with DIY centres, are proposed within the the paper thus enabling the traffic implications of this type of development to be assessed.
