Previous Consultation

The 2017 Sustainable Access Profiles and Methodology

Consultation took place between 12 January 2017 and 23 February 2017. Comments received on the 2017 Sustainable Access Profiles and Methodology consultation has been used to update the content of the 2018 Sustainable Access Profiles.

Key updates from 2017 consultation

  • Update on key services and facilities in each profile taking account of closures, additional and relocation of key services and facilities; and
  • Introduction of increased cycle distances to employment facilities
  • Revised centre point for Thornbury;
  • Creation of five new profiles covering Urban Edge locations.

Details of these updates and reasoning for them can be found in the 2018 Sustainable Access Methodology and in the individual sustainable access profiles.

The 2017 Sustainable Access Profiles and methodology have now been superseded and replaced by the information within the 2018 Sustainable Access Profiles.

2015 Topic Paper

A Rural Settlements and Villages 2015 Topic Paper, was produced and publicly consulted on in November 2015. Consultation comments received on the 2015 Topic Paper informed the approach to and content of the Sustainable Access Profiles. The 2015 Topic Paper and Appendices have now been superseded and replaced by the information within the 2017 Sustainable Access Profiles.
