Transport Development Plan Document

Under the Council's revised Local Development Scheme (LDS), the TransportDPD will not be progressed further. Its provisions will be taken forward as relevant in other DPDs, notably the Core Strategy and Allocations DPDs.

The Transport Development Plan Document (DPD) proposes to protect land for future Transport schemes. This is intended to assist in providing essential new infrastructure to accommodate the future housing and employment growth predicted for the East Riding.

Protection of land is also needed for Transport schemes promoted by the Council or other agencies to solve problems of congestion, safety, access and climate change.

The Transport DPD is consistent with other Plans, including the second Local Transport Plan in providing a spatial planning context. It also considers how improvements to the transport infrastructure can be achieved through new development and the potential impact it creates on the existing Transport network.
