Draft Local Plan - Supplementary Consultation

Question 11 - Infrastructure Requirements at Blythe

Representation ID: 9610

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Worcestershire County Council

Representation Summary:

It is clear that several suggested allocations will have an impact on Worcestershire's transport network. Some of the specific current issues that need to be considered are:
Access to Strategic Network/A Class roads:
The nearest motorway junctions are M42 J3 and J4, with both having known capacity constraints
Local roads:
Local roads are currently at capacity and transport modelling is necessary to understand the capacity of the local roads to accommodate further traffic
generated from new development
Rail Infrastructure and Services:
Parking capacity at stations along the corridor is poor, as is the level of service
provided.
Should investigate replacing smaller stations on Shakespeare Line with a larger station.
Education:
Woodrush Community High School in Worcestershire has direct links with the adjacent Dickens Heath area, as Tidbury Green Primary School in Solihull is
a named school for pupil admissions. Any housing proposals for this area may impact secondary school provision in Worcestershire.
WCC's Children, Families and Communities directorate would welcome opportunity to be included in any future consultations on housing/education.

Question 44 Are there any other comments

Representation ID: 10531

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Worcestershire County Council

Representation Summary:

Worcestershire County Council (WCC) welcomes the opportunity to comment on
the above consultation.
As the Local Plan is developed we look forward to ongoing engagement with
Solihull as a neighbouring authority on cross-border matters, including transport
and education infrastructure. We anticipate that this work will culminate in
inclusion of cross-boundary infrastructure in the Infrastructure Delivery Plan for
Solihull, supported by a Statement of Common Ground and Duty to Co-operate
agreement between the two authorities.
