If Toton Strategic Location for Growth (TSLFG) is developed broadly as envisaged in https://www.emcouncils.gov.uk/write/East_Midlands_HS2_Growth_Strategy_-_September_2017.pdf, residents of Stapleford will need to travel to TSLFG to work, and residents of TSLFG will want to travel to (regenerated) Stapleford to shop.
If developments within both TSLFG and Stapleford comply with Broxtowe’s Policies 14 & 15 – as published at https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/media/2160/broxtowe-aligned-core-strategy.pdf – cycling will be a significant mode of travel between TSLFG and Stapleford. Broxtowe’s Policy 14 specifies “ … improvements to … cycling facilities provided early in the build-out … sufficient to encourage sustainable modes of transport“.
So it’s desirable that some Towns Fund “connectivity” money be deployed making a start on cycleway links.
