Public transport connections

Description

Public transport connections 

The connection from Heligan Drive would link directly to the new local centre where a bus stop could encourage greater access to the facility and reinforce the centre as a "community hub".

Despite a lot of thought, it is quite impossible to view a large supermarket and carpark as a "community hub". When that is lost, so too is the basis of Great Parks 2 being a community development.

 

Walking and cycling

Integration between development phases and connections with key facilities such as the school, public transport nodes and the proposed local centre will require new and improved pedestrian and cycle links.

Note the continual use of the term "local centre". Try replacing the term "local centre" with "large supermarket and carpark" and see if the Masterplan still has the attraction it had after the public consultation.
