Traffic Management and Parking
A large proportion of older properties in South Molton lack off-street parking. This results in parked cars lining many streets; causing problems for emergency vehicles and large lorries.
To make a welcoming environment that is easy to navigate, quiet, clean and stress free. An experience that people will want to repeat.
Protect and visually enhance existing car parks in a central area as identified on the proposals map.
All new build properties will be expected to provide adequate car parking as detailed in policy H1a.
Contributing positively to the achievement of a western distributor road, which is design to support heavy vehicles and has safety measures in place to protect nearby residents, will count positively to the assessment of a development proposal.
The provision of the western distributor road would mean that all vehicles not needing to visit the centre of town would be encouraged to use this route; alleviating the pressure on South Street, West Street and the centre of town.
