Guidelines for Roads and Footpaths

Roads-1
Ensure that the cumulative impact on parking and congestion caused in the area by incremental development is taken account of for each small infill site.
Roads-2
Require that new developments provide paths, lit where appropriate, which link with the existing network of interconnecting footpaths, roads, streets and alleyways.
Roads-3
Retain and improve the existing footpath and bridleway network throughout the town and parish.
Roads-4
Discourage traffic from commercial and industrial development with appropriate regulations and signage to ensure that such traffic is routed directly out of the town and not through it.
Roads-5
Apply traffic calming measures consistent with signage guidelines at the entrances to the town to slow down traffic and make drivers aware that they have entered the town.
Roads-6
Require that all new developments and alterations to existing buildings give priority to pedestrian movement over vehicle traffic within the town centre, especially around Market Square.

Ed.note: These guidelines, found in section 5, page 17 of the WDS document, are prefixed here with ‘Roads-‘ to aid in referencing to them from elsewhere.
