7 October: There's just one week left of the Government's 'comments period' for 45 major transport projects - have you sent your views in?

We're now in the last week when people can send their views to the Department for Transport about local roads and other transport proposals - the deadline is Friday 14th October and, if you haven't seen it yet, our interactive map is a really simple way to check the proposals and send off your comments in just a few steps.

If you live near one of these schemes - or have connections with an affected area - you can fill in the simple form on our site and your comments will be sent directly to the ministerial team at the DfT.

SNUB meeting

 

Norwich meeting demonstrates lack of public consultation

Norwich is one of the areas we are focusing on - highlighting the work of local campaigners. The city is threatened by a 14km 'Northern Distributor Route' and the Stop Norwich Urbanisation (SNUB) group recently held a packed public meeting to oppose the plans.

 

A wide range of speakers discussed proposals for the North and East of the city with local people, and talked about the problems they will have if plans for a huge ring-road and associated development come about.

If you want to find out more details - and see clearly why the shape, size and location of planned developments in Norwich are wrong - an excellent place to look is Councillor Andrew Boswell's very useful presentation from the SNUB meeting: Download Andrew Boswell's SNUB presentation (pdf).

SNUB has also produced a letter you can print, sign and send to Transport Minister Norman Baker, telling him how little public consultation has taken place on the current plans: download the letter here.
