Policy ID2: Sustainable Transport for New Developments It is noted that the Policies Document states that Policy ID2 will replace CC2 of the Core Strategy. Whilst the required points on sustainable travel are covered, Policy CC2 also covered highway safety, which is not covered and needs to be incorporated into the plan. To manage expectations, it might be worth mentioning in the text supporting Policy ID2 that modes of travel may need to be prioritised, given the constraints on the public high

Infrastructure and Transport RBWM raise concerns towards potential impacts for the A308 corridor between the M25 and Windsor; the B376 corridor through Hythe End, Wraysbury and Datchet; and J13 of the M25. These areas are subject to significant peak hour congestion and/ or have existing air quality management areas. Therefore, they are particularly sensitive to additional traffic movements. Also, Spelthorne Council should be encouraged to consider the wider catchment for trips to and from devel

Policy ID2 concerns sustainable development and sets out the Council's requirements in relation to highways and parking. The Council should ensure that any policy requirement is fully evidenced, justified and tested for viability to ensure that it does not fetter the delivery of much needed employment floorspace. Any requirement for a contribution/obligation must be in line with the tests set out within Paragraph 55 of the NPPF and Regulation 122 of the CIL Regulations. In addition to the above

RBWM Highways supports the details relating to Policy ID2. The commitment to providing a transport assessment and travel plan for all major development proposals is welcomed. However, this needs to be supported by a commitment to monitoring of travel plans and taking appropriate enforcement action in the event of non-compliance with implementing the travel plan and failure to achieve targets. The policy seeks provision of new and accessible, safe and attractive sustainable transport networks an

While we support the provision of bespoke parking and cycle standards for Staines-upon-Thames, draft Policy ID2 is overly restrictive in requiring developments to provide vehicle and cycle parking in accordance with the Council's Parking SPD. This SPD currently dates from 2011 and is considered to be an outdated position on car parking provision, particularly as it does not allow for suitable flexibility where sites are highly sustainable and thus occupiers would be less reliant on the use of a

Transport Our letter dated 25 June 2018 in response to the consultation on the Spelthorne Local Plan issues and options indicated that Option 2, which proposed dispersed development, would be likely to increase the need for journeys by low-occupancy motor vehicles which contribute to congestion. This remains a concern with regard to the allocated sites around Sunbury, Shepperton and Ashford. Nevertheless it is considered that the Local Plan offers an opportunity to promote an active travel strat

Policy ID2: Sustainable Transport for New Development As previously identified, Walton Bridge which provides a physical link between our two Boroughs across the River Thames, is a cross-boundary strategic issue for further discussion. It is noted that this consultation is supported by a Transport Assessment. I can confirm that our Transport Assessment is progressing, and we will shortly be in a position to discuss strategic transport issues and if any improvements can be made to assist movements

Whichever scenario you follow there will be a significant increase in car ridership if the Local Plan proposals are implemented without amendment, the forecast is around 2%. This will have a massive impact in terms of movement within the Borough. The biggest danger is that without infastructure planned for and in place as the increase unfolds, the road network will struggle to cope. Increased journey times and more pollution will be a direct consequence, reducing the quality of life for Resident

am writing in connection with the proposed "local plan for Spelthorne". I have lived in Ashford for 37 years and in the nearby vicinity, Shepperton, for the previous 28 years and I have seen the area gradually fall apart on many levels, as new housing developments are put in place without the commensurate consideration for the need to improve the roads and facilities, to accommodate this growth. Where there has been some attempt to consider the impact of a build, we have all seen, and had to de

Policy ID2: Sustainable Transport for New Developments 2.25 Policy ID2 states "the Council will expect development proposals to facilitate sustainable and active modes of travel. This will be achieved by… b) provision of vehicles parking standards, as set out in the Council's latest Parking SPD". 2.26 The Council's desire to facilitate sustainable and active modes of travel is supported, however, in this regard, it is contended that the Council's latest Parking SPD is out of date and will promot
