Integrated Transport Planning is the Chamber’s Nottinghamshire Business of the Year

A consultancy specialising in integrated, sustainable transport planning and research has won the East Midlands Chamber* Nottinghamshire Business of the Year Award 2019.

Integrated Transport Planning (ITP) is a sustainable transport planning SME which has established a thriving international consultancy business.

In 12 years, it has built international trade to around 35% of its turnover, allowing staff to get involved with major transport programmes across the globe.

Its services provide advice on how to support an increase in walking, cycling and public transport use by creating transport systems which are safe, sustainable, fair and accessible for all.

It has been involved in international city-wide transformation projects conducted by international organisations, including The World Bank and Asian Development Bank.

Receiving the award from Mazars, the headline sponsor of the Chamber’s Business Awards 2019, ITP’s Managing Director Jon Parker said: “We entered the Chamber’s Business Awards because we’re proud of what we’re doing in Nottingham and this was a great opportunity to showcase the work we are doing in making modes of public transport more accessible.

“It’s incredible to win this award. We aim every day to make the world around us a better place, so to gain recognition through such a prestigious award is fantastic.”

Alistair Wesson, Partner at Mazars, said: “ITP is a worthy winner in a hotly contested award category. This is a fantastic achievement which showcases the ambition, drive and effort of the team.”

The company was one of 13 to win an award on the night, as the Chamber celebrated the strength and successes of businesses across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

To qualify as a contender for the supreme accolade of Business of the Year, ITP had already won the Excellence in International Trade award earlier in the evening.

Chamber President Kevin Harris added: “One of the main privileges of being Chamber President is being able to address and celebrate the crème de la crème of our region’s businesses at the Business Awards.

“Taking part in the Chamber’s Business Awards, the only local awards to offer winners the chance to go on to compete on a regional and national stage at the British Chambers of Commerce Awards, encourages an organisation to look closely at what they do best.

“Making it through to the final is cause for celebration in itself and whether you get that far or walk off with the ultimate crown, you should shout about that success and proclaim to the world that yours is one of the best businesses out there.”
