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.

This scheme is categorised as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project. Since we announced Option 2 as our preferred route, we’ve been working to refine the scheme. Our preferred scheme incorporates design changes which have been made as a result of public feedback received during the options consultation and further technical work that has progressed since late 2020. Our improvement scheme will reduce delays meaning people will have quicker and more reliable journeys.

To help us improve GOV.UK, we’d like to know more about your visit today. Don’t worry we won’t send you spam or share your email address with anyone. We focus on improving the nation’s health so that everyone can expect to live more of life in good health, and on levelling up health disparities to break the link between background and prospects for a healthy life.

If in doubt, read more information on electrical safety or asbestos and seek advice. Below are some examples of improvements you can and cannot make to your home. Some works may mean that a rent increase is necessary if the Association require to maintain or service the improvement. Decide to leave the improvement in the property to remain as part of the Association’s fixtures and fittings. First published in 2013 and updated in 2021, this is the third edition of Quality improvement made simple.

Since June 2019 modifications to the scheme have been proposed as a result of discussions with land owners and stakeholders. Anyone wishing to attend either the pre-inquiry or public inquiry must make their interest known to the Planning Inspectorate as soon as possible prior to the Inquiry. Please make it clear in your response whether you wish to join the meeting, make a statement or ask questions at the meeting. The majority of these works will be taking place away from the roads, but some lane and full closures will be required. These will be advertised both here, as well as through our social media channels. We permanently closed the dedicated entry slip to the M2 eastbound from the A249 northbound on the evening of 29 April.

Home improvement agencies are not-for-profit organisations run by housing associations, local authorities and charities. They can help people who own their own homes, or who live in privately rented accommodation, and who are elderly, disabled, or on a low income to repair, maintain or adapt their home. We provide many different services, listed below, covering Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire.

Housing Options

In addition, a local authority might have policies which don’t allow other types of discrimination such as discrimination against older people. If you are a council tenant or leaseholder, you can make improvements to your home, but you will need our written agreement before you start. Any contractors you employ must be suitably qualified and members of the respective trade organisation and hold a current Public Liability insurance policy. Where applicable, the manufacturer or contractor should provide a guarantee for improvements. Quality improvement involves the use of a systematic and coordinated approach to solving a problem using specific methods and tools with the aim of bringing about a measurable improvement within a health care setting.

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.

Scheme Background

This guide focuses on quality improvement, and is especially useful for health care staff leading fast and efficient service change as a result of the pandemic. We’re making improvements to the M2 junction 5/A249 Stockbury Roundabout. These changes will support improvements to safety and the potential for economic development and growth in the region.
