Help With Home Improvements improvements

Thank you to everyone for their patience during the recent weekend closure of the A249 to move utility services and pipes under the northbound carriageway. These services cross the carriageway, meaning we needed a full road closure to keep our teams and everyone using the road safe. We know there’s never a good time to complete this type of work on a busy road such as the A249. Separate to our improvement scheme, we’ll soon be working on the bridges that carry Stuppington Road, Wells Lane and Hunt Kennels over the M2 between junctions 5 and 6.

  • You can view the detailed proposals on all three of these elements, including images, in our consultation brochure.

The planned housing and economic growth have been included by Cheltenham Borough, Tewkesbury Borough and Gloucester City Councils in the adopted Joint Core Strategy. New housing and employment sites are proposed for development close to Junction 10 on the M5, including the West and North-West Cheltenham developments. To unlock these housing and job opportunities, we need to ensure that there is sufficient highway capacity to accommodate the increased motorised and non-motorised traffic these will generate.

Completing Your Project

If you’ve taken out a loan to make home improvements you might be able to get a government loan to help with interest payments. For more information about your landlord’s responsibility to do repairs, see Repairs in rented housing. This guide offers an explanation of some popular approaches used to improve quality, including where they have come from, their underlying principles and their efficacy and applicability within the healthcare arena. It also describes the factors that can help to ensure the successful use of these approaches and methods.

All updates, including progress of our scheme, will be provided on this webpage. You can also follow us on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts or sign up for email alerts using the link on the right of this page. Once we are aware your improvement is complete, a surveyor will inspect it to ensure it is up to standard. This will include compliance requirements and a form at the bottom of the letter. Please select an area to find out what is allowed and what will need permission. When a property is newly built, it is said to be within a “defects” period.

Thank you to everyone for their engagement and contribution in the development of the scheme to date. We will soon be starting preparation work at the end of the month, which need to be completed in order for us to begin the main construction activities in January 2022. As restrictions have been lifted, we’ll also be running some face-to-face events in late October. The dates, timings and locations of the events will be advertised here on our project website and through our social media channels. Don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter on the right-hand side of this page to stay up to date with the project as construction begins. Businesses on Oad Street will be open as usualthroughout, but there will be no through route to the A249.

The consultation survey results and feedback received are currently being reviewed in more detail. Further environmental information is also being gathered to develop a full Environmental Statement. A detailed statutory consultation report will be published in summer 2022. This will demonstrate how the consultation feedback has been used to inform and shape the final design proposals. In order to ensure we meet the current and future needs of local residents, businesses and commuters, it is critical that we listen to your views. The feedback we have received will help shape our design to better reflect the needs of our stakeholders, before we submit it as part of our Development Consent Order application.
