Out for community consultation from Mon 24th Feb until Eater Sunday 12th April 2020


 A12 Consultation - Public Meeting 30th November 2019

At the Public Meeting on 30th November it was clear that residents present did not have a clear majority view for any route. 

This is an important issue that directly affects our community, therefore the Parish Council withdrew their agreed response as a Council, but encouraged residents and Parish Councillors to submit individual responses so that the diversity of opinions in the community can be reflected in the consultation process.
