25.1 The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.
25.2 The Lead Member RESOLVED to approve the use of the revised “Road Safety Audit Policy for Developments” as a policy document of the highway authority for assessing the safety implications of development proposals in East Sussex.
25.3 Assessing road safety implications of a planning application for a development is a key aspect of considering planning applications. The policy document has been developed based on the latest national guidance regarding Road Safety Audits to ensure that, where appropriate, suitable Road safety Audits are provided as part of the planning application. This will allow safety implications to be fully assessed before any planning consent is granted. This will help reduce safety risk on the highways of East Sussex.
