Urban Flow Transport Planning Consultants
Movement People Places
We look wider than conventional transport planning and traffic engineering – to us it’s about getting things moving, whether by foot, cycle, bus, car or rail.
Bridging the gap between engineering and vision, we bring a Big Picture view in supporting and leading masterplanning, placemaking, development and cycle schemes – to name just a few.
With a great track record of scheme delivery and development planning application success for a wide variety of clients, we can help you get your project started and on the road to success.
We give what's needed to meet client needs:
we don’t over-analyse or over-engineer
if a high-level approach is all that’s needed – we say so
if a more detailed analytical approach is needed – we do that too
we say it the way we see it!

Meet The Team
Establishing Urban Flow in 2011, John had many years in transport planning - from past capacity-driven quick fixes, to real world ‘big picture’ planning for people and communities. That experience has been invaluable in developing distinctive and forward-looking movement schemes and initiatives.
Working in the Urban Flow way was always John's ambition - wanting to do things better and differently, putting people first and working fully collaboratively and more creatively with clients and partners.
These are fascinating times for transport with healthy living and placemaking now firmly embedded in our lives and Future Mobility experimentation and real-world application promising far-reaching and positive change for all of us. John and the Urban Flow team are excited to be playing an active part in shaping places and spaces in this new environment!
