InfoSupplementary Consultation

LTC Supplementary Consultation 2020 Index

The LTC Supplementary Consultation will run for 8 weeks from Weds 29th Jan to Weds 25th March 2020.  Due to the Coronavirus Highways England have today (March 19th 2020) announced that the consultation will be extended by 1 week and will not end at 23:59 on Thursday 2nd April 2020.  More details of this can be found on their website –

This consultation will cover the design changes that have been undertaken in response to the earlier statutory consultation and the feedback received.

This will very likely be the last chance for residents to have any chance to shape the design before Highways England submit their Development Consent Order application, which they current plan to do in Summer 2020.  It is vital that as many people as possible review and respond to this consultation.

Details of the changes and what HE will be consulting on in this consultation will be released at 00.01 on Weds 29th Jan.  We as an action group will of course share our comments on this as soon as we have had time to review the info.  We will no doubt then do further research and have lots of questions for Highways England.  You may wish to wait until closer to the end of the consultation period to respond so that you can review as much info as possible before responding.


Details can also be found on Highways England’s official website –
