In spring 2019, Highways England will announce its preferred route for the A417 ‘missing link’ which will aim to improve the road at Brockworth and Cowley. This will have an impact on sites managed by the National Trust and Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust and the Cotswold Conservation Board and they are working hard to ensure the A417 scheme is landscape-led and delivers gains for wildlife.
If you have any questions or concerns for Highways England, you can join their project team for a monthly web chat from 12:30pm until 1:30pm on the last Wednesday of every month. Just log on at the foot of the page linked below on the day of the web chat and submit your questions.
Here are the dates and times for sessions over the next few months:
Wednesday 31 October 2018, 12:30-1:30pm
Wednesday 28 November 2018, 12:30-1:30pm
Wednesday 30 January 2019, 12:30-1:30pm
Wednesday 27 February 2019, 12:30-1:30pm
If you would like to share any information with partners relating to the A417 please do comment below and share links, however, whilst we have a vested interest to ensure the very best decisions are made for our natural environment, the LNP themselves are no longer actively engaged in this matter and is being led by the partners mentioned above.
