Main Changes to Local Plan 2030

Policy S21 - Orbital Park (MC27)

Page 111 Policy S21 Para 4.245

Response to rep 2709

Amend paragraph 4.245 in S21 – Orbital Park to read:

As a result of previous planning permissions, developing the majority of the remaining undeveloped plots at Orbital Park is not constrained by the need to deliver any off-site highway improvements, either at junction 10 of the M20 or at the A2070 junction that provides the main access into the site. The remaining vacant plots in the “central island” of the site (enclosed by The Boulevard, Monument way and the long barrow) would be constrained in this way and as such, may also be brought forward for development when it can be demonstrated through a robust Transport Assessment (as per Policy TRA8), that sufficient capacity is available at both the motorway junction and the A2070 junction to accommodate the form of development proposed.
