A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement Scheme
I am writing as chairman of Madingley Parish Council which has land beside the proposed road improvement works. I would like to put my Councils thoughts to the Inspector at an appropriate time of your choosing and am happy to do this in person if the hearing is in this area or in writing if the hearing will be based some distance away.
Thank you for your interest in this application, your offer to participate is most welcome.
The Highways Agency have submitted an application to the Planning Inspectorate for a development consent order to authorise their project. My colleagues and I are in the process of testing this application, to determine whether it is fit for examination. We will make our decision about whether to accept the application on behalf of the Secretary of State before 28 January 2015.
If the application is accepted for examination, the Highways Agency will publicise a period during which parties are able to submit ?relevant representations?. This will be via the project page at attachment 1, and will be open for at least four weeks. As a parish council which would host the proposed project, your clerk will be notified of this by the applicant. This will be the opportunity for you, on behalf of Madingley Parish Council, to put your views to the Examining Inspector(s) and register to participate in the examination. Once registered, there will be further opportunity to address the examination, including at hearings which will be in the vicinity of the proposal.
Further information about participating in our process is online at attachment 2; this includes a pdf advice note and an explanatory video. Please do share this with anyone you think will benefit.
