Comments invited: next stage kicks off


23 Feb 2022

Today marks the next stage of the process to help the Secretary of State for Transport look again at the A303 Stonehenge DCO (Development Consent Order) application.

Comments invited: next stage kicks off

People and organisations are now able to respond on any points contained in the Transport Secretary’s “Statement of Matters” letter published in November 2021 and National Highway’s response including updated environmental information.  This contains the results of routine surveys carried out since 2018 including ecology and groundwater monitoring to make sure information is kept as up to date as possible. These have been published today on the Planning Inspectorate’s website.

This consultation ends at 11.59pm on Monday 4 April.  All responses should be sent via the Planning Inspectorate email address. The documents and further information – including how to get copies if needed – may be found on the Planning Inspectorate’s website.

A303 Stonehenge Project Manager David Bullock said, “We’re pleased that this process is moving forward. We’re confident that this is the best solution for solving the traffic problems on the A303 in the context of Stonehenge and the surrounding World Heritage Site landscape.”
