Extension proposals

Traffic

The development has been designed so that there will only be a negligible increase in traffic at junctions close to the site. The development will be served by a new roundabout on the A17, which will be constructed in accordance with highway design safety standards.

 

Due to the nature of shift patterns at warehouse developments like this, staff are unlikely to be travelling on local roads, and at the A1/A46 roundabout junctions, at peak times.

 

The impact of the development on local highways, and at these junctions, will therefore be negligible.

 

The existing pedestrian footpath and cycleway on the A17 will be extended to provide access to the site, allowing employees to walk and cycle to work. A green travel plan will also be implemented. This will include car sharing initiatives, along with other measures to encourage staff to use sustainable travel to and from work. A full Transport Assessment will be submitted with the Planning Application.
