Traffic and parking are already issues and would be made worse
Traffic is a major concern for the residents of Minchinhampton and the addition of the proposed 150 new homes will generate a big increase in traffic using roads designed and laid out for use by horse and cart. The applicant’s figures, analysis and proposed highway alterations are deeply flawed. The single point of access to the proposed 150 houses and doctors surgery is a major failing in the proposed design. The significant loss of car parking to accommodate the proposed highway alterations adversely impacts many existing houses in the central parts of Minchinhampton.
