This broad area contains a range of environmental sensitivities and so accommodating the transport infrastructure and other proposals without resulting in adverse effects on these and other interests will be extremely challenging. It will be critical therefore that further iterations of the development options for these areas are informed by robust ecological and landscape evidence and supported by strategic mitigation solutions, as outlined above.
