The Transport Assessments for all the policies above should encourage a modal transport shift towards walking and cycling. High quality, traffic-free walking and cycling routes integrate effectively with the wider transport network. These links should provide realistic travel alternatives to short distance car journeys, offering direct and convenient access. Increasing active travel participation would help to reduce vehicle congestion on roads, address issues of air quality and improve public health and well-being.

The County Council strongly recommends the wording for requirement 1) “Proposals for the development of the site will be informed by and address: 1) an archaeological evaluation” is modified to: pre-design archaeological evaluation assessment and provision, if necessary, for the preservation of significant archaeological remains
