TRA7 Impact on the local road network
Policy TRA7 – The Road Network and Development

Developments that would generate significant traffic movements must be well related to the primary and secondary road network and this should have adequate capacity to accommodate the development. New accesses and intensified use of existing accesses onto the primary or secondary road network will not be permitted if a materially risk of road traffic accidents or significant traffic delays would be likely to result.

In rural area, proposals which would generate levels and types of traffic movements, including heavy goods vehicle traffic, beyond that which the rural roads could reasonably accommodate in terms of capacity and road safety will not be permitted.
