Highways England is seeking development consent for the scheme under the Planning Act
2008 (the “Act”). This legislation requires Highways England to make an application to the
Planning Inspectorate (‘the Inspectorate’) for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to get
the consent they need to build the scheme.
Highways England submitted its application for a DCO on Monday 31 May 2021. This
application was accepted for examination by the Inspectorate (on behalf of the Secretary of
State) on 29 June 2021.
The Parish Council has made representation to register to become an Interested Party to take part in the Examination of the above application and will continue to press the concerns raised by the Parish (see PC responses to Consultations in 2020 and 2019 below).
Any person may make representations on the Application to the Secretary of State (that is: giving notice of any interest in, or objection to the Application).
If you should wish to do so, details of the way in which representations must be made are included in the Section 56 notice here.
Any representation relating to the Application must be submitted on a registration form and give the grounds on which it is made. The Inspectorate has issued detailed advice on registering as an Interested Party and making a Relevant Representation, to which you are advised to have regard. This Advice Note (8.2 – How to Register to Participate in an Examination) is published on the National Infrastructure Planning website under ‘Legislation and Advice’ and can be found here
Representations must be received by the Inspectorate no later than 23:59 on Thursday 2 September 2021. Please note that any submitted representations to the Inspectorate will be published on the National Infrastructure Planning website for the Application.
Highways England consulted again on plans to upgrade the A417 Missing Link between the Brockworth bypass and Cowley roundabout, between 13 October and 12 November 2020.
Since the consultation in Autumn 2019, Highways England made some changes to the scheme’s design, which included new crossings, the gradient of the A417 as it climbs the escarpment at Crickley Hill, Cowley junction, the rerouting of the B4070 to Birdlip, improvements for walkers, cyclists, horse-riders and disabled users, and replacement common land.

Coberley Parish Council responded to this consultation. Here is our submission against the Oct/Nov 2020 Consultation.
Highways England is drawing up plans to improve the A417 Missing Link between Brockworth bypass and Cowley roundabout, with the aim of creating a more reliable and safer road, reduce rat running and improve local air quality.
In autumn 2019, Highways England asked people what they thought of these plans and is now using the feedback to amend its plans. This includes responding to requests to improve local connectivity, accessibility and reduce the scheme’s impact on communities and the environment.
Highways England needs a bit more time to amend its plans and collect survey data. This extra work will however ensure it delivers the best practicable solution for all.
The Development Consent Order application will now be submitted in 2021, and Highways England will continue to provide further scheme updates in the coming months.
