Paragraph 10.7
We generally agree with the brief analysis of constraints given in paragraph 10.7 concerning rail. However the district appears to be reasonably well served by this mode and we suggest that opportunities for rail enhancements could be amplified in this section of the Core Strategy. This applies to both passenger and freight, and in this context we note that there are few references to freight transport in this section. This should be addressed with reference to encouraging alternatives to road transport where possible.
