"Our industry leading consultant team including DKO architects, Tract Consulting and Ratio Consultants proved invaluable in obtaining the permit for Branson to deliver a world-class gated townhouse community in this rapidly gentrifying suburb.

The success of this planning application and development can be attributed to an extremely collaborative approach between Branson Group, Whittlesea Council and Branson Group’s external stakeholders to overcome design, traffic and urban planning issues."

— Ben Atanasovski, Director at Branson Group

The luxury residential property developer looked to Ratio’s transport team to ensure their residents would safely and easily move around the streets.

Ratio’s team used their extensive knowledge of master-planned communities and road networks to undertake extensive traffic data collection at the key intersection of McKimmies Road and Betula Avenue to assess if the site would be impacted by external traffic.

Permit Approved

With Ratio’s assistance, the Belmont Collection was granted quick and efficient approval from Council.

Residents of the development will experience a safe and functional road and shared path network with discreet rear access road and carparking for the townhouses.

Our Work

The 107-townhouse development was a draft concept plan when Ratio reviewed the site.

Our transport team were engaged to provide design advice for the layout of the internal road network, external road intersections, traffic impacts, internal pedestrian and shared path network, garage design and adequacy of on-site resident and visitor carparking.

Our transport team also conducted a crash history assessment of the adjacent road network and reviewed the site’s accessibility by sustainable transport modes. This information informed a detailed traffic report for the developments planning application process.
