SECTION 47 PLANNING ACT 2008 A303 STONEHENGE: AMESBURY TO BERWICK DOWN NOTICE OF PUBLICATION OF STATEMENT OF COMMUNITY CONSULTATION
HIGHWAYS ENGLAND COMPANY LIMITED of Bridge House, 1 Walnut Tree Close, Guildford, GU1 4LZ (“Highways England”) has now published a Statement of Community Consultation (“SoCC”) for the A303 Stonehenge: Amesbury to Berwick Down Scheme (“A303 Stonehenge”), in accordance with Section 47 of the Planning Act 2008. Under Section 47 Highways England has a duty to consult the local community about its proposals in accordance with its SoCC. Highways England is proposing to upgrade the A303 past Stonehenge between Amesbury and Berwick Down to a dual two-lane carriageway. The Scheme is approximately 8 miles (nearly 13km) long and comprises the following key elements:
• A bypass to the north of Winterbourne Stoke with a viaduct over the Till valley;
• A new junction between the A303 and A360 to the west of and outside the Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites World Heritage Site (The World Heritage Site), replacing the existing Longbarrow roundabout; • A twin-bore tunnel at least 1.8 miles (2.9 km) long past Stonehenge;
• A new junction between the A303 and A345 at the site of the existing Countess roundabout;
The Scheme is an Environmental Impact Assessment development (“EIA development”), which means a Preliminary Environmental Information Report (“PEI Report”) will be produced and consulted on. The PEI Report will describe the environmental effects of the A303 Stonehenge scheme known at the time of consultation. Highways England proposes to undertake its statutory consultation for the proposed A303 Stonehenge scheme between Thursday 8 February 2018 and Friday 6 April 2018. The SoCC explains how Highways England will consult the local community and how you can get involved, view the consultation materials (including plans, consultation booklet, response form, SoCC and PEI Report) and speak with members of the Project Team at the following locations, dates and times: SECTION 47 PLANNING ACT 2008 A303 STONEHENGE: AMESburY TO bErWICk DOWN NOTICE Of PubLICATION Of STATEMENT Of COMMuNITY CONSuLTATION Venue Dates and times Antrobus House 39 Salisbury Rd, Amesbury, SP4 7HH Friday 9 February 2018 at 14.00 to 20.00 and Saturday 10 February 2018 at 11.00 to 17.00 kennet Valley Village Hall (Avebury) Overton Road, Lockeridge, Marlborough Wiltshire SN8 4EL Thursday 22 February 2018 at 14.00 to 20.00 Warminster Civic Centre Sambourne Road, Warminster BA12 8LB Friday 23 February 2018 at 14.00 to 20.00 Shrewton Village Hall Recreation Ground, The Hollow, Shrewton, SP3 4JY Saturday 24 February 2018 at 11.00 to 17.00 The Laverton Hall Bratton Road, Westbury, The Laverton BA13 3EN Tuesday 27 February 2018 at 14.00 to 20.00 Mere Lecture Hall Salisbury Street, Mere, Wiltshire BA12 6HA Thursday 1 March 2018 at 14.00 to 20.00 The Guildhall, Salisbury The Market Place, Salisbury, SP1 1JH Saturday 3 March 2018 at 11.00 to 17.00 Society of Antiquaries Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, W1J 0BE Thursday 8 March 2018 at 12.00 to 20.00 The Manor barn High St, Winterbourne Stoke, SP3 4SZ Friday 9 March 2018 at 14.00 to 20.00 and Saturday 10 March 2018 at 11.00 to 17.00 Avon Valley College Recreation Road, Durrington, SP4 8HH Tuesday 13 March 2018 at 14.00 to 20.00 Larkhill Primary School Wilson Road, Larkhill, SP4 8QB Wednesday 14 March 2018 at 16.00 to 20.30 Antrobus House 39 Salisbury Rd, Amesbury, SP4 7HH Friday 23 March 2018 at 14.00 to 20.00 You can also view the consultation materials via the deposit locations set out in our Section 48 notice under the Planning Act 2008 or via the A303 Stonehenge scheme website at www.highways.gov.uk/A303Stonehenge/consultation.
