Amendments to supporting text and Policy S6 – Newtown Works

Add new paragraph after 4.78 as follows:

While it is expected that the delivery of improvements to the strategic road network will greatly enhance the ability of sites to come forward at pace, there will still be a need to ensure that traffic movements resulting from development proposals are sustainably managed. Therefore, where traffic generation to and from the site is expected to exceed that of previous lawful uses, a Transport Statement/Transport Assessment should be provided in accordance with Policy TRA8.

Add new paragraph after 4.87 as follows:

Southern Water’s assessment has revealed that additional sewerage infrastructure would be required to serve the proposed development. The development will therefore be required to make a connection to the nearest point of adequate capacity in the sewerage network. Early liaison should take place with the service provider in this regard.

Add new criteria j) and k) in Policy text for S6:

j) Provide a connection to the nearest point of adequate capacity in the sewerage network, in collaboration with the service provider.

k) Provide an adequate gap between the wastewater pumping station and development to allow odour dispersal and help prevent an unacceptable impact from vibration. Provide future access to the existing sewerage infrastructure for maintenance and upsizing purposes.

(Remainder of policy is retained)
