Traffic and transport
The site benefits from excellent transport access, with Pepper Lane providing access to the A49 Preston Road to the east and to the west Old Pepper Lane provides access onto the A5209 Almond Brook Road, allowing the M6 and M61 to be within easy reach by car.
It is proposed that the new homes will be accessed from two points on the local highway network.
- Ludlow Street (eastern access)
- Pepper Lane (northern access, leading through to the southern access)
A lot of detailed technical work has been undertaken which demonstrates that the vehicles associated with the scheme can be safely accommodated on the local highway network.
