Traffic mitigation


We understand the importance of getting travel and transport right when developing a new community. 


Assessments of the potential impact that Monarch Park (and the wider Stamford North proposal) might have on local roads have been carried out over the past few years and are still ongoing, particularly with regard to the detailed impact on junctions. A list of the junctions that are being investigated follows below. 


Once conclusions have been reached, mitigations would be proposed where required and agreed with the highways authorities. This would form part of the Transport Assessment submitted as part of future planning applications both on Monarch Park and other parts of the Stamford North development.


The junctions that are being assessed to understand the impact of the proposed development on vehicular traffic are: 


  1. B1081/Sidney Farm Lane Priority Junction

  2. B1081/Empingham Road Priority Junction

  11. A1/A606 South-Facing Slips Priority Junction

Sustainable Transport

At Monarch Park, our approach to transport is aligned with the principles of the Stamford North development – which is ‘Places First’. Based on the ‘Manual for Streets’ guidance by the Department of Transport, this approach places a high priority on meeting the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users, to ensure that growth in these modes of transport is encouraged. 


While all modes of transport would be accommodated at Monarch Park, a key focus is therefore good quality pedestrian and cycle routes providing connections across Stamford North, into Stamford and to local destinations and schools. A new, accessible bus route across Stamford North is also planned. 

The ‘Places First’ approach also places a high priority on:


  • Recognising the importance of the community function of streets – which serve to integrate neighbourhoods rather than segregate them

  • Promoting inclusive design for all users

  • Creating networks of streets to maximise permeability and connectivity
