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 and routes associated with new development, which is welcomed. However, RBWM Highways requests that developers should consider the wider catchment of their developments and transport networks should extend beyond borough boundaries as appropriate.
