Investing locally,
delivering nationally

Where we are

Phase Two Consultation is underway and will continue until 23 April 2018

Where we are

At an early stage we carried out initial Environmental Scoping which is available on the National Infrastructure Planning website. This scoping process established the technical work we carried out and identified the environmental aspects that would need to be considered as we developed our proposals

Since November 2015, we have been engaging proactively with the local communities and their representatives. We introduced the scheme to MPs, local councillors, parish councils and other representatives ahead of the full public consultation that started in April 2016. In April and May 2016, we held a number of public exhibitions as part of our Phase One consultation to help people understand the plans and register their comments and opinions. In August 2016, Ashfield Land published updated illustrative plans and new visual material as part of the Phase One community consultation. This first round of consultation closed on 21 October 2016.

Phase Two consultation started on 15 March and is due to continue until 23 April 2018.
