#CowickPBus and Sylvan Heights

Part of the planning conditions placed on the Sylvan Heights development on the site of the old Crossmead Hall site by Devon County Council was the formulation of a Green Travel Plan.

As the Officer’s report to Exeter City Council’s Planning Committee states:
The Travel Plan identifies key objectives and measures to discourage the use of the car and facilitate the use of alternative modes of travel.”

The Framework Travel Plan (see link to this document from ECC planning portal on application 08/1476/03) referred to by the Planning officer is clear that bus provision is an important part of tthose alternative modes of travel:
3.4.4. With four bus stops located within 200m the bus service is a very convenient mode of transport to travel to the site when considering the high frequency of bus services to and from the City Centre and nearby towns.

Many of the residents bought properties on the basis of statements contained with the document. How does this square with DCC’s proposal to cut evening and Sunday services on the P route?
