To provide an update on progress of the West of England Joint Spatial Plan (WoE JSP) and Joint Transport Study and the response to the autumn 2015 consultation on Issues and Options paper and Joint Transport Study consultation
The Commission received presentations updating members on the Joint Spatial Strategy and Joint Transport Study consultations which were being developed and would run concurrently. The topic would then return to the commission in the Autumn. In response to the presentation, the following points of feedback were raised:
- It was suggested that Whitchurch should not be considered a prospect with sustainable transport links as the only road servicing Whitchurch was the A38. Officers reassured the commission that the consultation would look at all options and consider the most sustainable and viable.
- The M4/M5 interchange area was raised as an option for further development although officers reported that it was not highly recommended due to transport links for sustainable transport options.
