VALP Main Modifications
Representation ID: 3530
Respondent: Hampden Fields Action Group
Legally compliant? Yes
(See also MM008) The Plan no longer uses evidence to indicate that a
review will be needed soon after adoption. The modified statement
jettisons any evidence reference and simply envisages an update at some
undefined future point. As that would inevitable during the remaining
13-year life of the Plan, the modification can only mean that the Council
has changed its commitment to a positive, evidence-based approach in
favour of a bland, "drift and see" policy.
Full remedial action to correct the errors and gaps in the transport evidence base and modelling,
followed by a revised set of proposals including funding plans and timetable, with public consultation
on these modifications.
