Pedals Response to Rushcliffe BC Planning application 18/02806/OUT – Residential etc. development Land North of Nottingham Road Radcliffe On Trent (14 Jan 2019)

In view of the proximity of this site to the cycle path on the A52 it is important that the opportunity be taken, if these proposals are approved, to use developer contributions for Highways England to upgrade this route in the vicinity of the development. This is very important, in addition to encouraging use of Sustrans National Cycle Network Route 15, to help promote cycle access to and from the development, and thereby help to reduce some of the extra private motor vehicle trips it will generate. The site will also benefit from completion of the nearby Cotgrave Greenway and would particularly benefit from the provision of a new access to and from the Greenway, close to the development and the A52 cycle path.
