I welcome the proposed new M11 junction for reasons of developing the local economy. This needs simply to be done; virtually any additional junction within reason is better than no new one.

Whilst the Local Plan has an overarching theme of a significant increase of sustainable travel, HCC are concerned that the transport related policies are not supportive enough and the policy wording lacking in crucial areas to achieve the modal shift to 60% sustainable travel.
A primary area of concern is the lack of a clearly defined modal hierarchy. Whilst it is referred to throughout, it is not presented definitively.
Another key concern is the lack of linkage with the parking policy. In order to encourage a switch to sustainable transport modes, there is a need to limit the amount of parking provision, particularly at locations served by the proposed sustainable transport corridors. Whilst Essex County Council's parking strategy allows some flexibility, there is concern it is not in line with the ambition of the sustainable travel target.

Highways England interest with the proposal is with the potential impact on the Strategic Road Network (SRN) and its ability to be able to operate safely and efficiently with the proposals in place. In particular, our interest relates to the M11, Junction 7 being the nearest access point of the proposed development to the SRN.
It is noted that planning permission has been sought and design is progressing for a new M11 Junction 7a, and this will need to be in place when the development in the plan commences construction if problems at M11 J7 are to be avoided. This applies more so to site HS 3 than any of the other sites, which individually are likely to have relatively little impact upon M11 J7.

HARLOW LOCAL PLAN PRE SUBMISSION
Thank you for inviting the Highways Agency to comment on the proposed Local plan pre submission documents.
Highways England interest with the proposal is with the potential impact on the Strategic Road Network (SRN) and its ability to be able to operate safely and efficiently with the proposals in place. In particular, our interest relates to the M11, Junction 7 being the nearest access point of the proposed development to the SRN.
It is noted that planning permission has been sought and design is progressing for a new M11 Junction 7a, and this will need to be in place when the development in the plan commences construction if problems at M11 J7 are to be avoided. This applies more so to site HS 3 than any of the other sites, which individually are likely to have relatively little impact upon M11 J7.
Highways England have been heavily involved in the transport evidence base and support the enhancement to public transport and sustainable mode offer for Harlow and surrounding developments
Yours sincerely
Mark Norman

For the purposes of sustainable travel plans, the report justifies sustainable travel methods with the inclusion of cycling, walking and public transport. A high emphasis is placed on residents cycling, walking and using public transport. However, most working people are 'time poor' and these methods are time consuming.

The opportunity to create a north/south Sustainable Transport Corridor through Harlow is supported subject to further assessment and, if found sound, should carry a specific policy commitment.

Text may not place sufficient emphasis on the importance of and localised necessary characteristics of sustainable travel. ECC (Highways) recommends the paragraph is amended.
