An afterthought: does your professional association actually know that one of their members can express engineering concepts in clear accessible English? I thought that was considered a disciplinary offence!

We are pleased to announce we have today launched a new website at http://www.renewable-energy-planning.com
Renewable energy can be classified by many different processes, from wind turbines to waste processing, and recycling centres to anaerobic digestion plants.
This website describes how we carry out the assessment of, and mitigation of highway planning issues relating to renewable energy projects.
It will be of interest to all renewable energy companies, their architects and planners as well as many others with a general interest in such matters.
We are pleased to announce we have today launched a new website at http://www.sweptpathanalysis.com
At a basic level this includes calculating the path taken by each wheel during the turn and also calculating the space needed by the vehicle body during the turn.
These forms of calculation used to be carried out by hand, but in recent years, with modern software, the process has been computerised.
Clearly the importance of a Swept Path Analysis prior to and during the design stage of any development/extension can represent massive abortive cost savings for a developer.
This website has been written to explain how a Swept Path Analysis is completed and includes several minor case studies which should be of interest to all.
Mike Wallis Design Services recommend Sanderson Associates because of the quick, efficient, and obliging service provided. My enquiry was dealt with the same day, saving me time and ‘hassle’, just what I needed.
You kept us very well informed throughout the process, and after a delay caused by receiving anomalous data from the environment agency, pulled out all the stops to get the report to us in time for the planning deadline….and planning permission was granted, so thank you very much.
Good service, efficient and to the point.
We commissioned Sanderson Associates to undertake a Flood Risk Report to support our planning application. The application process was challenging and the commitment and professionalism they have shown in dealing with the Local Authority was outstanding. The application has now been approved and if it wasn’t for the hard work that you have put in the application would of got refused. Thank you.
We have always received a professional response to any queries raised and will continue to use Sandersons on any future Flood Assessments.
29th June 2011 at our offices at Grange Moor, only a few places left…
Following on from Planning Policy Statement 25 (PPS25): ‘Development and Flood Risk’ in December 2006, the Environment Agency (EA) has provided updated Flood Risk Standing Advice (FRSA). The updated advice reflects policy contained within PPS25 and the EA role as a statutory consultee on flood risk matters. This seminar will bring this advice along with current practice up to the minute and add a planning policy perspective, a focus on Environmental Impact Assessment, the importance of FRA and environmental impact in the planning process and an engineering perspective, focusing on the Sanderson’s approach to these matters;
