As part of the supporting evidence base for the Local Plan the District Council has commissioned two Bridgwater Transport reports.
The Forecast Report assesses the current traffic conditions in the town and tests the impact of various potential development options both individually and cumulatively. This first report has been used to help develop the preferred options that now form part of the Proposed Submission Local Plan.
The second Option Testing Report assesses the strategic allocations included in the Plan and models the impact of various large scale interventions. This report will inform the longer term transport strategy for the town that is likely to include significant new roads to support future growth. The reports also provide initial evidence to inform future site specific traffic impact reports.
