Celebrating 15 years in business

2020 is Entran's 15th year in business. We can't believe how quickly time has flown by. The Bristol office has moved into larger premises, twice, and we now have offices in London and Cardiff. We will be using this anniversary as an excuse to re-vamp the website and refresh our branding - and to have a few drinks with our clients and colleagues of course.

A new access close to a level crossing required Entran to reach agreement with ESCC and Network Rail. Residential parking demand was also an area of protracted discussion and, ultimately, agreement.

Residential permission in Stevenage

Last night North Herts DC granted planning permission for 86 new homes on land at Odyssey Health Club near Stevenage. Entran provided Transportation and Environmental consultancy services in support of the successful application. Ealier proposals on this site had been refused due to the access arrangements, but Entran designed a new compact roundabout (and pair of bus stops) that met with the approval of both highway and planning authorities.

Does the National Design Guide promote collaboration or silo working?
