Infrastructure Delivery Plan Publications

The Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) will give details of the infrastructure that is required to support the growth set out in the SWDP. The information set out in the IDP will be used to develop the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), and to inform and support negotiations with developers about site specific s106 and s278 (and other relevant) agreements to contribute towards their impact on the local and strategic transport network.

Transport Publications

The Transport Background Paper Technical Update identifies the necessary transport related infrastructure and public transport services, and gives advice on, and the preparation of, the transport evidence to fulfil the requirements of the Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP).

Worcester Transport Strategy includes a comprehensive programme of transport improvements to deal with the existing and future transport needs of the city and its environs.

  • Worcestershire Infrastructure Study Update (Worcestershire County Council)

Since the initial study in April 2009, the new coalition government has resulted in the revocation of the Regional Spatial Strategy and thus the development targets on which the infrastructure study was based upon. Local Authorities now have the autonomy to set their own development targets. The South Worcestershire authorities are currently reviewing their development requirements in light of new arrangements, however a full picture of targets across Worcestershire is not expected until later in 2011.

The local transport plan is a collection of documents which set out the long-term vision, objectives and outcomes for transport in Worcestershire. The plan includes a range of policies, underpinned by a strategic programme of investment in maintenance of the existing network and investments in transport schemes where these can be justified, to deliver the vision and achieve the objectives and outcomes sought.

  • Worcestershire Infrastructure Study (Baker Associates, April 2009)

In 2008 Worcestershire County Council commissioned Baker Associates to identify the infrastructure requirements arising from the development targets set out in the Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) Phase Two Preferred Option report. The report identified the existing capacity of infrastructure (a baseline) and then assessed the impacts of additional development on the requirement for infrastructure.

This table provides a summary of the integrated transport and highlights problems of accessibility in and around Worcester City namely, limited river crosses by car, bus services which are delayed by traffic congestion and capacity problem on the strategic rail network. Further to this table an overview of the Worcester integrated transport strategy is provided.
