A417 Missing Link Consultation
As you may already have heard, the consultation on the A417 Missing Link Air Ballon is now open and comments can be made until midnight 8th November 2019.
After the previous consultation in March 2018, Highways England said that the issues arising further down the A417/9 with noise on the concrete section would be dealt with as part of the overall Missing Link project which was great news.
A417 Missing Link Scheme
UPDATE: Secretary of State for Transport has confirmed the A417 Missing Link scheme can proceed to a Development Consent Order (DCO) planning application
We have hopefully got good news for all parishioners who are disturbed by the road noise in DA, with formal notification of the Missing Link consultation - which is the section of road at Birdlip which Highways England intends to turn into Dual Carriageway. As part of this consultation we have the opportunity to raise the issue of noise pollution again - in particular the concrete sections between Latton and Daglingworth - which has been a constant source of complaint and where evidence exists that excessive noise pollution has been experienced by residents since the road was built.
From Down Ampney Parish Council
Your Parish council met on the 2nd July to receive news that the negotiations with Sanctuary Developments had come to an end with them making the decision to build out the Broadway Farm development as per the existing planning consent. This means that the village requirements to amend the scheme would not now be considered.
