Transport and Infrastructure Planning

Transport planning

Stratford-on-Avon District Council works closely with Warwickshire County Council (WCC), the local highway authority, in matters relating to strategic transport planning.

WCC have prepared a Local Transport Plan (LTP), setting out the transport strategy and policies for Warwickshire for the period 2011-2026.

Stratford-upon-Avon Area Transport Strategy

The Stratford-upon-Avon Area Transport Strategy sets out Warwickshire County Council and Stratford-on-Avon District Council's shared transport strategy for Stratford-upon-Avon and the town's immediate environs and key strategic links. It identifies the general principles that need to underlie the development of the town's transport network over the next 15 to 20 years.

Following the public consultation that took place in February and March 2017, a revised draft Stratford-upon-Avon Area Transport Strategy has been published.

The feedback to the consultation has been reviewed and analysed and a Consultation Evaluation Report has been published alongside the revised strategy.

The revised Strategy will be considered by Warwickshire County Council and Stratford-on-Avon District Council's Cabinet and Full Council meetings in the first quarter of 2018.

A46 Partnership

We are members of the A46 Partnership. This is a group set up to promote investment in the A46 corridor and to produce a strategy to deliver planned infrastructure improvements to the A46 between M5 Junction 9 and M6/M69 at Coventry.

The A46 Partnership has prepared a prospectus to help make the case for further investment in this important Midlands route corridor from the M5 to the M6.

Proposed M42 junction 6 improvement scheme

Highways England plans to improve traffic flows at an important junction for the millions of people that travel to Birmingham International Airport every year and also surrounding venues such as the National Exhibition Centre. The project, due to start in 2020, will see the creation of a new 2.4km dual carriageway link road – aligned to the west of Bickenhill – between the A45 Clock Interchange and a new junction on the M42 south of junction 6 located north of Solihull Road. Highways England is inviting everyone to have their say on the details at a statutory public consultation running from 9 January 2018 until 9 March 2018.

Further details on the consultation can be found on the Highways England website.

Infrastructure planning

Stratford-on-Avon District Council works with service providers to co-ordinate the delivery of infrastructure necessary to support new homes and jobs. We have adopted our Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Schedule, effective from 1 February 2018. CIL will operate alongside and partially replace Section 106 agreements. The latter will remain the primary mechanism for securing on-site infrastructure, dealing with site-specific issues and providing affordable housing. CIL will replace S106 agreements for funding the general infrastructure required to achieve growth and for dealing with the cumulative demands on infrastructure from smaller developments.
