If Toton Strategic Location for Growth (TSLFG) is developed as envisaged in https://www.emcouncils.gov.uk/write/East_Midlands_HS2_Growth_Strategy_-_September_2017.pdf, residents of Long Eaton will travel to TSLFG to work, and residents of TSLFG will travel to Long Eaton to shop. Residents from redeveloped “land north of Lock Lane, Sawley” will travel to Long Eaton. People from redeveloped Radcliffe-on-Soar may wish to travel to Long Eaton.
If these developments comply with Erewash’s Policies 14 & 15 – as at https://www.erewash.gov.uk/media/EBC/web-files/planning/Final_Core_Strategy_-_Version_for_Website.pdf – cycling will be a significant mode of travel. Erewash’s Policy 14 specifies “ … improvements to … cycling facilities provided early in the build-out … sufficient to encourage sustainable modes of transport“.
Some “connectivity” money should be deployed making a start on providing extra cycleway capacity to cater for the extra cycle-traffic generated by the developments.
