JSP Consultation, Chairman’s Thoughts

Just to note the consultation period for the JSP has now opened and runs until 10th January 2018. The consultation home page can be found here https://www.jointplanningwofe.org.uk

It’s really worth taking some time to read the full JSP before deciding how to respond. Don’t forget the local meetings with FFC too.

Note especially for Charfield (Policy 7.9) the JSP talks about providing *or contributing to* a strategic transport package.

In my personal opinion there must be a *fully implemented* strategic transport strategy prior to expansion of housing in the area. Contributions to a poorly thought out transport infrastructure are not acceptable.
