Suffolk’s Energy Gateway Consultation

Suffolk’s Energy Gateway Consultation

A consultation that will open on Tuesday 12 September about Suffolk’s Energy Gateway, specifically the proposed new road to by-pass the villages of Farnham, Stratford St Andrew, Little Glemham and Marlesford on the A12.

The scheme is designed to provide a modern high quality road to enable, support and deliver economic growth in East Suffolk and enhance the quality of life for local people. Should the scheme be delivered, the existing road will remain open for local traffic, providing access to the four villages and local businesses.

It is very important that local residents, businesses and community groups get involved in this consultation to ensure that all local views and opinions are represented in the business case that Suffolk County Council must submit to Government before the end of 2017.

Two public exhibitions have been organised to give local communities an opportunity to see the proposals in detail and find out more about the benefits of the scheme. Members of the project team will be on hand to answer questions.

The exhibitions will be held at the Riverside Centre in Stratford St Andrew (6 Great Glemham Rd, Stratford St Andrew, Saxmundham IP17 1LL) on the following days:

• Wednesday 20 September 2017 – 10am to 6pm
• Saturday 23 September 2017 – 10am to 6pm

In addition, from 12 September, all information will be available online at: www.suffolk.gov.uk/consultations

The consultation will close on 25 October 2017.
