A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement Scheme
Request information about timetable for publication of application documents, start of examination and production of Local Impact Report.
My team and I are working through the application documents this week and next to check their suitability for publishing (personal information or sensitive environmental documents may need redaction). I expect that the full set will be published towards the end of next week.
Information about examination timescales is available on our website at attachment 1. Following this timescale, and taking into account the election period, our preliminary meeting could be in mid-May, with the six month examination proceeding through to November. This is, of course, subject to the application being accepted, and timescales are at the discretion of a future examining authority who has not yet been appointed.
Local Impact Reports are considered very important by Examining Authorities, and are generally requested early in the process. Most examination timetables require these at the first deadline, within a month of the preliminary meeting. More information about the production of Local Impact Reports is at attachment 2.
Remember that the Local Authorities may submit relevant representations corporately, in addition to their more restricted role as a local planning authority. Cambridgeshire County Council members may also chose to provide relevant representations individually, or in political groups, to become involved in our examination.
I look forward to working with you and your colleagues over the coming months and am happy to provide further advice by phone and email to you or your members.
