Policy S10 - Gasworks Lane (MC17)

Page 77 Policy S10 Para 4.120

Response to rep 2323, 2700 and 2354

Add 2 new paragraphs after 4.120 supporting text for Policy S10 Gasworks Lane, 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.

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 two criterion to Policy S10 – Gasworks Lane as follows:

d. be accompanied by an assessment of any contamination arising from the existing or previous uses and demonstrate how any remaining contamination issues can be resolved;

e. provide a connection to the nearest point of adequate capacity in the sewerage network, in collaboration with the service provider.
