Dynamo has objected to planning application 16/01599/OUT for up to 49 houses at Higher Bond Gate, Abbeystead Road, Dolphinholme as follows:
Dynamo (Lancaster & District Cycle Campaign) wishes to object to this application on the grounds that it will increase traffic along narrow country lanes without providing anything in mitigation.
Dolphinholme has hardly any facilities beyond a primary school. Thus all activities will involve a car journey unless provision is made AT THE OUTSET for cycling to be the normal choice to get to The Fleece, Galgate or Lancaster University (for either work or study) for those who wish to do so. The City Council cannot continue to grant planning permission for housing developments without incorporating essential infrastructure for sustainability from the start.
