The NXAG is opposed to the new Great Haddon development but in response to the planning application the group makes the following recommendations:
To re-route the A15 into the new township centre, that there should be no bus gate on the old A15 and that there should be minimal traffic lights installed.
That the space between the proposed new road and the current A15 should be designated green space in order to create a buffer between the new development and Yaxley. This green space should be protected in perpetuity through covenant.
That initially there should be no traffic calming measures on the existing A15 and that money should be held in reserve until such time that a full appraisal is undertaken once the new routes are fully operational. That all road systems should be installed in advance of any other development.
That Waterslade Road should be opened to two-way traffic and to adjoin the A15.
There should be a significant green belt/environmental buffer between the new development and the old A1 north of Norman Cross.
There should be no access roads from the old A1 onto the new residential development and that no commercial vehicles should be allowed to access the proposed commercial development from the old A1.
There should be no traffic lights at the junction of the A15 and the old A1 and that this junction should be given careful planning consideration due to its close proximity to the A1(M) junction 16.
