Have your say towards the A303 Environmental Statement

Shrewton Parish Council, as a ‘Consultation Body’, has been requested to provide any information it considers relevant for an Environmental Statement concerning the proposed A303 tunnel and Winterbourne Stoke bypass.

The Environmental Statement includes topics such as air quality, cultural heritage, landscape, biodiversity, geology and soils, road drainage and the water environment, materials, noise and vibration, people and communities, climate and combined and cumulative effects (e.g. the impact on human health is a combination of air quality, noise and vibration, people and communities, road drainage and its effect on the water environment).

To enter your comments please email them to shrewtonparishcouncil@gmail.com. The closing date for this survey is 15 November, this so the statutory deadline of 20 November, a cut-off date that cannot be extended, can be met.
