A417 Missing Link
Received 25 August 2021
From Sue Beynon
“Route 30 does not serve the best interests of the local community and the wider environment. The National planning policy framework (NPPF) refers to the government having a clear commitment to protecting ANOB’s and that “planning permission should be refused for major developments in these designated areas except in exceptional circumstances. Other route options would do much less damage to the environment such as route 12 which largely follows the line of the existing road. Construction traffic for the current proposed route will cause damage and disruption to our villagers, roads, wildlife and businesses”
