Draft Transport Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document Consultation

Arcus Consulting on behalf of the Peak District National Park Authority has prepared documentation which describes how transport infrastructure can be designed in a way that achieves its functional purpose, whilst conserving and enhancing the character and appearance of the National Park.

The National Park Authority is undertaking a 9 week consultation period for comments on the document, commencing on Monday 13th November 2017.  Representations must be received either electronically or in writing at the National Park Authority Office by 5pm on Friday 12th January 2018.

On this occasion the National Park Authority has agreed with the main environmental bodies (Natural England, Historic England and the Environment Agency) that there is no need to undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment as the main purpose of the document is to supplement higher level policies in the adopted Core Strategy (which has undergone full assessment).

The document can be inspected at various council offices and libraries in and around the National Park and can be viewed on the Authority’s website: – www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/transportdesignguideconsultation
