Access Linkages

The new neighbourhood will utilise existing access arrangements and not introduce new connecting roads or vehicular bridges across the river.

  • Storrs Bridge Lane and Rowell Lane will be re-used and enhanced for vehicular access.
  • New internal roads will be private roads to create intimate development clusters centred around village greens. Street lighting can be minimised.
  • No vehicular link connecting the two main development sites to prevent car use through the site. This will remove the continuation of built form through the valley.
  • Existing bridges for the top and bottom sites will be replaced with new single track bridges to calm traffic.
  • Walking route and rights of way across the site will be retained and enhanced with ongoing financial support from the development by way of service charges.
  • Some development clusters are centred around a village green with loop lanes to reduce visual impact and create slow car free spaces.
