Outline Water Cycle Study 2018

The study provides information to demonstrate workable solutions to issues identified in the preceding phase one scoping report (completed in January 2018) to deliver future development for all development sites (committed and allocations) including recommendations on the policy to deliver it.

Scoping Water Cycle Study 2018

The council is required to produce a Water Cycle Study (WCS) as part of its evidence base, which investigates the existing foul water treatment capacity to ensure growth in the district does not impact on water quality.

In addition, the borough falls within an area of demonstrable 'water stress' as defined by the Environment Agency and planned growth (in addition to other pressures) is forecast to lead to a supply demand deficit within the next 10 years.

The scoping WCS therefore also makes recommendations as to what water efficiency standards should be adopted.

The scoping WCS considered the potential impact on water resources and water supply infrastructure as a result of the planned growth across the borough. This document is available to view below:

Longcross Garden Village - Infrastructure and Viability Assessment 2017

Engineering firm AECOM has been commissioned by the council to undertake a high level assessment of the viability of bringing forward infrastructure at Longcross in line with garden village principles. The council asked AECOM to focus its analysis on the key garden city principles, with some modifications to tailor them to Longcross and take into account the goals and aspirations of the council as well as the local context. The final report can be viewed below:

Runnymede Infrastructure Delivery Plan 2017

Building on the work undertaken for the Infrastructure Needs Assessment (INA) 2017, consultants AECOM were commissioned by the Council to undertake an Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP). The IDP and its Addendum contain information on a number of infrastructure projects that will support delivery of the Local Plan and sets out project timing, costs and funding secured to date. The IDP and Addendum is a 'living' document and will be subject to updates over the lifetime of the Local Plan as infrastructure projects evolve over time, especially projects identified in the longer term. In this respect the Council has set out the infrastructure projects identified in the IDP and Addendum in a series of Infrastructure Schedules which align to 5 year phases of the Local Plan and its housing trajectory. The Schedules are based on the timing and costs of the projects identified in the IDP and Addendum but do not include any additional projects, although some may have been renamed since the publication of the IDP and Addendum. The IDP, Addendum and Infrastructure Schedules can be viewed below:

Runnymede Infrastructure Needs Assessment 2017

The Infrastructure Needs Assessment (INA) sets out the current baseline infrastructure capacity in Runnymede for a number of different infrastructure types. The INA also considers future infrastructure requirements which will be needed to support the level of growth in the Runnymede Local Plan 2030. A copy of the INA is available to view below along with an addendum report for the additional sites set out in the Local Plan additional sites and options consultation.

Surrey Infrastructure Study  2016

The Surrey infrastructure study was prepared on behalf of the county council and the eleven borough and district councils in Surrey. Each of the boroughs and districts has an existing or emerging local plan that sets out the planned development across its area and the infrastructure needed to support it in the short to medium term. The study brings these plans together to provide an overview of growth and infrastructure at the strategic level across Surrey and to highlight to government, infrastructure providers, developers, local communities and businesses the scale of investment required. The Surrey infrastructure study has been split into different sections and can be found below:

Transport

Surrey County Council has been commissioned to assess the traffic impact for multiple scenarios as part of the Runnymede 2035 Local Plan using the county's strategic highway model.

A320 Corridor Study Final Report (April 2018)

The PDF icon to indicate a PDF file A320 Corridor Study Final Report (April 2018) identifies capacity constraints along the A320, identifies the volume of movements that need and can to be accommodated. It also provides strategic mitigation measures, including sustainable measures, to support growth along the corridor up to 2036.

A320 Corridor Study Interim Report (February 2018)

The A320 corridor study interim report was initially produced and published in draft form in December 2017. As further work was completed, this report was replaced with the January 2018 version which contains concept stage mitigation measures, initial sketch schemes and high-level costings for identified mitigation proposals. This January 2018 report superseded the earlier December 2017 report. In February 2018, a third, and final version of this interim report was published. The February 2018 interim report supersedes both the January 2018 and December 2017 versions but all three iterations of the study can be viewed below for completeness.

Strategic Highway Assessment Report (October 2017)

The aim of the Runnymede Strategic Highway Assessment Report is to assess potential development-sites and to highlight junctions and sections of road to focus mitigation solutions.  

This will aid the borough by providing transport evidence to inform the Regulation 19 (draft Local Plan) consultation.

The Strategic Highway Assessment Report can be viewed below:

Transport Assessment (June 2016)

The Transport Assessment sets out the development and validation of the model, the forecasting methodology, and the results and appraisal of the traffic impact of the potential development sites in Runnymede.
