Egg Transport Planning | About

Egg Transport Planning was formed by Stephen Flacke in 2020. With more than 20 years’ experience of transport planning consultancy work behind him, Stephen has been involved in a wide range of transport planning projects nationwide for both the public and private sectors. He has advised developers, town planners and architects and now works almost exclusively for private sector clients producing supporting documents for planning applications and providing advice on the transport aspects of proposals.

Stephen understands that developers do not want a Transport Assessment or a Transport Statement – they simply want planning permission, in the most cost-effective and quickest way.

With an Honours degree in Civil Engineering from The University of Manchester, Stephen is a Chartered Engineer and a Member of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (MCIHT).

Passionate about delivering a high-quality service in order to benefit his clients, Stephen is well placed to advise potential clients on their transport planning requirements.

As a privately owned, independent consultancy, Egg Transport Planning is not constrained by the pressures of achieving large profit margins. Potential clients can be assured that, with Egg Transport Planning, they would receive the best advice and therefore, the highest chance of obtaining planning permission.

Stephen is married with two daughters and lives in the beautiful Cheshire town of Poynton. He enjoys walks in the countryside, occasional runs, socialising and the occasional beer. He has worked across the world from Australia to Edinburgh, London to Manchester and New Zealand. A seasoned traveller, Stephen has also spent time in South East Asia, South America and India. He has also lived in Poland for a time.


“I have worked on several projects where Stephen has provided transport planning advice. He has good attention to detail and finds solutions to problems through pragmatic design. He is very approachable and takes the time to understand the needs of the client. I would recommend using Stephen for transport planning advice.” Garry Usherwood, Garry Usherwood Associates Limited

“Stephen helped us with a planning application that was the subject of an objection from highways officers. Stephen provided advice on the layout and liaised with the highway authority. He helped to overcome the objection from highways and ultimately assisted in the scheme gaining planning permission. I would definitely use him again on future projects,” Tony Carter, Carter-Smith Planning Consultants
