How will the transport system cope with growth?
In order to reduce environmental impact including contributions to climate change and air pollution, it is important that we choose locations for growth that reduce the need to travel, promote walking and cycling and make best use of existing transport networks and planned improvements. As growth options are developed there will be further work to identify what additional transport improvements will be required to support the chosen growth option and sites.
As well as the work being done for the local plan, the County Council is looking at wider issues on our transport networks and is undertaking a review of the transport strategy for the Norwich area and network improvement strategies for market towns. These strategies will be developed alongside the emerging growth plans and will look at the opportunities for wider improvements to the transport system.
