Development Management is an important part of the planning process and is assuming greater professional and political significance in delivering and managing the sustainable communities’ agenda. It is a function which ensures that any new development has the minimum adverse impact on highway safety, traffic capacity, environmental capacity and convenience to transport users as a whole.
IHE’s Transport Development management course is the only one in the UK designed specifically for transport practitioners working in Development Management roles and leads to the IHE Professional Certificate/Diploma in DM.
The course delivers learning across the wide diversity of subjects a Development Management Practitioner requires, in both the private and public fields of work, which are assessed through assignments leading to a DM Foundation Certificate.
We also offer an extra day on appeal work, including a practical exercise/mock hearing. Even the initial highways response must beware of later dispute. You will explore good practice, how to prepare and deliver a case and how to manage conflict, including an interactive workshop testing your views.
The course has been updated to ensure the latest government changes with regards to national planning policy, S106 contributions and sustainable drainage systems are fully covered.
Students attend two residential sessions of two days each, with an optional appeal work day added to the second session, and complete four assignments, each of which demands around three days preparation at work or in their own time. Line managers are expected to mentor and support their staff.

IHE Professional Certificates and Professional Diplomas accredit the skills highways practitioners are expected to know and deliver in the workplace. IHE membership is not required, and you don’t need any specific academic qualifications or to take a training course.
IHE Professional Certificates are one of the cornerstones of our exciting new virtual Highway Engineering Academy. They can be completed either through a structure training course or through independent study. IHE Professional Certificates are for practitioners who are technically competent and are often skilled practitioners working under the guidance of others. More information can be found in the Professional Certificate application and guidance booklets below.
In addition, IHE Professional Certificates can form the basis for Engineering Council registration at Engineering Technician (EngTech) level. The two processes are designed to build upon each other and applying for EngTech alongside your Professional Certificate is easy. The supporting guidance booklets can be found below.
IHE Professional Diplomas provide recognition to the skilled senior practitioners working in the highways sector. Like the rest of the virtual Highway Engineering Academy, they can be completed either through a structure training course or through independent study. IHE Professional Diplomas are for practitioners know the ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’, exercise independent judgement, hold a responsible position and lead and manage. More information can be found in the Professional Diploma application and guidance booklets below.
In addition, IHE Professional Diplomas can provide the foundation for achieving the academic bases required for Engineering Council registration at Incorporated Engineer (IEng) level. The two processes are designed to complement each other and applying for IEng alongside your Professional Diploma is straightforward. The supporting guidance booklets can be found below.
