Representation Summary:


We support the identification of the existing employment site as providing future employment within the Spatial Framework, and in particular the need for the new village to maintain a direct access to the strategic highway network to/from the employment site.

However, it is noted under Section 5: Creating the Place that there are a number of spatial fixes, one of which, Fix A, is to provide a "primary street" linking the main access points. This primary street must "serve the village centre and provide direct vehicle access to the existing employment site." (page 38).

This is supported and is of vital importance to the success of the employment redevelopment proposal. However, the Spatial Framework (Fig. 22 on page 31) has in error annotated the access to the existing employment site as a secondary street and not a primary street.

This should be amended to reflect Fix A and show the existing employment site being served by the primary street.
