We will discard preconceptions of what may be acceptable or unacceptable and indeed through the consultation process. we will make sure that the public and other stakeholders are allowed to consider options only in a pragmatic framework, and that the options are strategic in intent but localised issues will also prevail. If a number of schemas are developed then it may be necessary to filter these schemes at an early stage. This will be undertaken through the use of a simple ranking system assessing the schemes against all of the GOMMS criteria and also against LTP objectives. As part of the assessment schemes will need to be broadly costed.
We will seek to liaise closely with the SRA/Rail track for costing issues related to rail services or infrastructure improvements. The problem identification stage will allow a range of solutions to be identified. As a starting point, consideration can be given to all of the elements in Table 7.1 to identify whether individually or jointly they can address the problems being experienced.
Many of these interventions can be discarded at an early stage because they are unlikely to impact on the problems identified. The remaining, Standard SEO service and those which are not within this list but which we determined as a consequence of our study, will be grouped together to form strategy themes. The effectiveness of the schemes will be assessed against estimated costs of the various elements. which will assess the cost of the scheme in comparison to the scale of effect it is likely to produce and the ability of the scheme to be funded by the private sector through developer contributions or quality partnerships of some sort.
The focus of the consultation activities at this stage will be to discuss and develop the options, which the team have under consideration as solutions for the final recommendations. We will need to explain and educate without leading and give people space to refine, amend and reject. The groups will be presented with the emerging options. We would choose a different venue from the first round. Interactive materials will be developed to enable options to be discussed and ranked.
The Panels would meet (this time face to face) to consider the emerging options. As with the workshops interactive materials will be developed to enable options to be discussed and ranked but there would be more emphasis on local measures. We would also use the workshops to identify showstoppers and mitigation measures, which might render measures more acceptable.
WSP confirmed that Count On Us were in discussions with the Police. WSP also confirmed that they had now not elected to not undertake registration plate surveys on the basis that the collection of vehicle classifications is difficult. match rates are notoriously poor over such a large area and that the comprehensive coverage of RSI data and the infilling from their new surveys, would be more than adequate in terms of determining routing patterns. WSP confirmed that the sites as shown in paragraph 4.31, would not allow for any leakage in Bradford on Avon.
GOSW requested WSP to check that site 3 did not duplicate interception of HGVs using this route to avoid the weight restriction at B-on-A at site 2. English Heritage and the Countryside Agency were also included in the data collection approach. In view of the fact that the Salisbury model was in simulation, it was agreed to retain the simulation since it would be more difficult to record it as buffer.
WCC provided a plan from Atkins that related to the strategic diversions that have been recommended for traffic, both in the strategic and local context. WSP also indicated that journey time information from commercial sources, such as IT is being explored. This would provide journey time and potentially even routing data. A further figure was tabled which relates to the programme of monitoring sites in Wiltshire coverage of count sites both during the Limpley Stoke closure and before.
It was indicated that there would be a paucity of sites during the critical four week block in the middle of October. This revealed that there would be a paucity of sites during the critical four week block in the middle of October. Link Building Services WCC confirmed that they should review their counter provision and see if it was possible to displace some counters from other sites. WSP indicated that they had already potentially prejudged the situation and had gone out to subcontractors for procurement of counters.
In paragraph 6.6 it was requested that Bradford on Avon be included in addition to Bath in the 2nd bullet. The rail issues were again raised and WSP were referred to the Bristol Rail Capacity Study. The approach to be taken by the Project Team for consultation was considered, Several new opportunities have arisen most notably being. This may offer an opportunity for the consultation process to have yet another source of information through this forum. HOW to forward details of conference.
