|Policy AMP 4 Protection for New Transport Schemes|
|Planning permission will not be granted for development that would prejudice the implementation of a transport scheme identified in a development plan.|
Justification and Amplification
5.29 It is important to ensure that land needed to facilitate a new transport scheme (such as a road scheme, improvements to pedestrian or cycle networks or a public transport scheme and associated facilities) is protected from development that would prejudice its implementation. Such land will be identified in the relevant development plan.
5.30 The following matters will be taken into account in assessing whether the implementation of a particular scheme would be prejudiced by a development proposal:
- the nature of the proposal;
- the programming of the transport scheme; and
- the extent to which implementation of the scheme would be compromised by the carrying out of the proposed development.
5.31 It is recognised that blight resulting from the need to protect land required for a future transport scheme can have a damaging impact on an area. Every effort will be made to minimise the effects of blight and where this is unavoidable provision exists to compensate landowners whose land is required for such schemes.
