Improvements To Your Home improvements

The modifications can be found in detail under Highways Act 1980 Ordersbelow and are described in the section ‘Modifications to Orders’ below. Maidstone Road to the A249 Stockbury Roundabout would be closed, and Maidstone Road would be re-routed to link with Oad Street. The existing junction of Oad Street with the A249 would be closed with a new link provided south of the existing Oad Street to connect with the A249 Stockbury Roundabout.

You can also learn about how a building contract can provide peace of mind and in what situation you may need a lawful development certificate. This will be followed by an application to the Planning Inspectorate at central government for a permission to build, also known as a Development Consent Order . The Planning Inspectorate will consider the application and, if they approve it, make a recommendation to the Secretary of State under Section 37 of the Planning Act 2008 to seek authorisation to build the scheme. The scheme will be funded through the council’s successful bid to the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund , for £249m for the M5 Junction 10 Improvements Scheme.

Policy Papers And Consultations

This may be a simple search through our records, or could include a new survey. Information about scheduled roadworks and events on our motorways and major roads. The Secretary of State, on 21 June 2021, confirmed with modifications the Truck Road Order, Side Roads Order and Compulsory Purchase Order. He issued a Decision Letter to Highways England and those parties represented at the Public Inquiry.

  • However, if your local authority’s own rules set a time limit, it must pay you within this time limit.
  • This may be a simple search through our records, or could include a new survey.
  • The improvement remains as part of the Association’s fixtures and fittings.
  • If you intend to carry out the work yourself, you won’t be able to claim for the cost of your labour.
  • In some cases, your landlord might be responsible for making the changes.

Both the modifications and the Environmental Statement Addendum were published for consultation on 24 January 2020. We published the Orders for the M2 junction 5/A249 Stockbury Roundabout improvements scheme under the Highways Act 1980 on 13 June 2019 with a representation period of six weeks that ended on 25 July 2019. A local authority must give you a disabled facilities grant if you meet the conditions for getting one. If you’re disabled, a local authority must provide application forms in a form you can use, for example, in large print. A local authority can have its own application forms for help, and its own rules about what you have to do to apply for help.

Help With Home Improvements

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.

Need For The Scheme

This rule doesn’t apply in some cases where the landlord lives in the same property as you. If you rent your home and apply to your local authority for help with home improvements, you’ll need to get your landlord’s permission before the local authority will agree to help you. If you’re disabled and the changes are to do with your disability, your landlord shouldn’t refuse permission unless they have a good reason. In some cases, your landlord might be responsible for making the changes.
