Early stages of planning for Garden Village transport improvements

Thursday, April 18, 2019

Lancashire County Council will be carrying out investigative work, as part of planning for transport improvements and access to the proposed Bailrigg Garden Village in Lancaster.

This investigative work is needed for the statutory planning process.

These improvements would include a new access road into the garden village and an upgrade to junction 33 on the M6, as well as public transport and cycling route improvements.

The plans will add extra capacity on the road network around the proposed garden village site and further afield.

Local residents, landowners and businesses will be notified in advance of this investigative work, which will provide more detailed knowledge of the ecology, landscape and environment in this area.

Carrying out survey work at a particular site doesn't necessarily mean that it would be part of any future scheme, but helps to build up a more detailed picture of the area.

Further consultation and formal proposals will be needed, before any plans are officially agreed for highway improvements at the Garden Village scheme.
