Here are our developing policies

Purpose

To support a range of sustainable transport options.

Rationale and Evidence

National policy and guidance

Local Plan policies.

Transport routes / reliance / data

Infrastructure deficiencies.

KTI1: Sustainable Transport

  1. Development that is likely to generate additional journeys must include a balanced and sustainable range of transport options, proportionate to the scale and nature of the development.
  • Residential development must include secure, covered storage for cycles and personal vehicles for all new dwellings. 
  • Development involving new layout must prioritise pedestrian and cycle convenience, permeability and connectivity, meeting the requirements of Policy KHD1. This includes connections to allow easy access to surrounding footpaths, bus stops and community facilities.
  • Development involving the creation of new parking or garage facilities must include charging facilities for electric vehicles.

Interpretation:

The requirement for transport provision to be proportionate to the scale and nature of the development recognises that some minor developments, with no generation of journeys, would not be expected to address transport provision. Development creating employment space or new dwellings would clearly need to respond, especially schemes creating new road layouts.

The Policy should be applied together with Policy KHD1, which also deals with pedestrian convenience.

KTI2: Transport Infrastructure

  1. In considering the impact of development on traffic safety and capacity, particular regard will be paid to impacts on existing congestion points. These are:
  • List

Interpretation:

Against the context of national policy, creating additional traffic movements where there are already safety and/or congestion problems has the potential to create severe impacts.

KTI3: Infrastructure Priorities

  1. Infrastructure expenditure priorities are:
  • Improvement of the village hall;
  •  

Interpretation:

The policy is intended as guidance to the local planning authority in the use of Section 106 or CIL contributions. The Parish Council will be guided by the policy in its use of CIL contributions.
