PPS 3: Access, Movement and Parking
Development Plans: New Transport Schemes, Walking and Cycling
4.8 New transport schemes include major proposals for road, rail and public transport provision, as well as proposals to aid modal shift to more sustainable forms of transport e.g. park and ride or park and share facilities and improvements to public transport services and the pedestrian and cycle network.
4.9 The RTS and the supporting framework of transport plans will identify and prioritise future transport schemes. The transport plan / study will provide locational detail for such schemes and land required to facilitate their implementation will then be identified and protected in the appropriate development plan. This will include protection of routes and sites for transport infrastructure schemes beyond the development plan period where these are of strategic importance.
