The most recent public consultation on the Heysham to M6 link road came to an end on the 31 July 2011.  Residents and stakeholders had the opportunity to view the proposed scheme at five locations strategically placed in the vicinity of the 4.8 km route from White Lund to Junction 34 at the M6.

Nearly 800 people attended the exhibitions over five days and we received 369 feedback forms, together with around 120 emails and 47 letters. Key consultation documents were also made available at several deposit locations and were available on the project website throughout the consultation period.

We have sent individual replies to all those who requested more information about the scheme. We have also visited those who wanted detailed discussions about issues directly affecting them; and used the information gleaned to help shape the scheme and our application that we have now submitted to the IPC.

The feedback we received from the questionnaires showed that 72% of those who responded had a good understanding of the proposals; 24% had a limited understanding; whilst only 4% said they didn’t understand the proposals.

Thank you for your comments, the county council has taken on board your suggestions and comments, and where appropriate, incorporated them into the proposals before an application is submitted to the Infrastructure Planning Commission (IPC) for consideration. Your contribution will have helped shape the county council’s application to the IPC, which has now been accepted for examination.

Our application included a consultation report along with an Environmental Statement, and plans of the proposals. A copy of all the documents submitted with our application can be viewed on the Infrastructure Planning Commission website.
