The LPA supports the implementation of the existing planning permissions and strategic masterplan relating to the strategic development proposals for the Saltram Meadow. Development will create a high quality a mixed use neighbourhood which delivers significant new housing alongside a new local centre, education and sports facilities and employment opportunities which meet the daily needs of the new residents and employees. The proposals provide for
1,682 new homes and 11,325 sq.m. of employment floorspace. Any significant changes to the approved schemes will need to be supported by a revised strategic masterplan.
The following key principles should be continued in any later revisions to the approved schemes:
1. Delivery towards off-site transport infrastructure to mitigate against the impact of the development, including a public transport interchange.
2. Integration of a redeveloped Pomphlett Industrial Estate as a functional part of the neighbourhood.
3. Delivery of the following community infrastructure:
i. A local centre including a small - medium sized supermarket with complementary local facilities including a GP Surgery/ Medical Centre.
ii. Playing pitches.
iii. A new primary school
iv. A 3g playing pitch and a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) including provision of community changing facilities.
