Development at the existing larger settlements is more sustainable and more rapidly deliverable than the Garden Village proposals. The proposed new road to access from the A370 to Station Road will open that land for development but without a radically improved public rapid transportation system congestion will be increased.

Live-Work units that make use of the roll out of fibre to the premises and produce opportunities for small scale business start-up without creating outward commuting should be utilised.

Local Employment land integrated and well connected with new housing is essential to reduce out commuting.

Infrastructure Investment must be implemented ahead of new housing.

Connectivity of new housing to the station by effective frequent green public transport is essential.

 

Summary
Development at existing larger settlements is more sustainable and rapidly deliverable than Garden Villages. Proposed new road to access from the A370 to Station Road will open land for development but without a radically improved public rapid transportation congestion will be increased. Live-Work units that provide opportunities for small scale business start-up without creating outward commuting should be utilised. Need local employment, infrastructure investment first and connectivity.
