Accessibility, Communications & Transport
The Accessibility, Communications and Transport topic group, set up in 2017 (Doreen Clark, John Dunn, John Marshall, later joined by Sean Jackson) gathered a range of information related to issues raised as particularly significant in the initial NDP Questionnaire responses in April 2017.
The Evidence Base report gathers this information together. It covers key National and Local Planning policies and guidance, and draws together all relevant information available on this topic area and identified issues that emerged for the research e.g.
- What do we consider the strengths and weaknesses of the existing roads and transport systems?
- How can we protect and improve its performance and safey?
- How can we best safeguard the streets and lanes of the parish for the future?
- What are the key threats, priorities and objectives?

These issues then became the basis for the April 2018 Household Survey and Consultation events (See Links below), and helped the steering group to identify Planning objectives for the NDP exhibited at the September 2019 Local Policy Consultation events. The results of these public consultations are also included in the report, and form the basis of the NDP draft Plan Policies (Dec 2020); the Reg14 Pre-Submission consultation (Jan 2021) and the Reg15 Full Submission Document.
