Aspirational Policies

Policy:  AC 2: Improvements to the A3

As a priority of the Plan, sound-proofing along the A3 Guildford bypass through Burpham is essential to improve the comfort and well-being of the residents and shall be considered in any development proposal or potential increase of traffic levels.

Overwhelming numbers of respondants consider the noise from the traffic a problem and if energy from solar panels can be incorporated within the sound barriers this would be of great benefit. The use of CIL  & S106 monies to provide Sound-proofing is supported by this plan.
