S30: Egerton Parish Council has been gifted a plot of land which abuts the proposed New Road development site at its northern apex.  Egerton Parish Council has earmarked this additional site for development in respect of accommodation to meet the needs of older and disabled local residents.  Discussions with ABC and KCC have already confirmed that in principle this would be appropriate development in addition to that on the New Road site.  Access to and from the additional site would be need to be via the New Road site.  Consequently, the following wording should be used to reflect this change in circumstances: 

"d. Provide new pedestrian and traffic routes throughout and through the development to provide access from the adjacent land abutting the Northern section of the site, to connect with existing rural routes; and facilitate safe access between Harmers Way, New Road and local services."
