The Transport Assessment has been produced in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council and the Highways Agency.
It is a strategic study intended to identify the cumulative transport implications of proposed residential and employment growth within the District in order to advise on strategic transport infrastructure requirements.
The study considers all modes of transport and has examined the transport implications of future growth at an assessment year of 2026.
It is the first stage of the Transport Assessment process and it will be necessary for more detailed analysis to be undertaken at the appropriate time. This will include more detailed assessments of the transport implications of all development sites, undertaken either as studies to guide the preparation of Development Plan Documents, or as part of the evidence submitted in support of planning applications.
