The road will initially be closed from 25 April for six weeks, we’ll then reopen it for the summer, before closing it again in the autumn. We’ve also closed Oad Street between Woodgate Lane and the A249 so we can start to widen the road, and allow for the new layout at junction 5. Drivers passing under the M2 viaduct northbound on the A249 will see and hear this work as they drive through, as piling is a noisy activity.

We’re replacing expansion joints, waterproofing and resurfacing them. In March, we constructed some platforms on the northbound and southbound verges of the A249. These were for specialist machines known as piling rigs, which will be helping us to start building retaining walls for the new links to and from the M2.

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.
For example, its rules might say you can’t get a grant if your savings are over a certain limit. Although your local authority can have its own rules, there are certain things that it must or must not do when it provides help with home improvements. Your local authority must have rules about help with home improvements, but it can’t have rules which are completely rigid or unreasonable. For example, it can’t say it will never give any grants, and it must take your individual circumstances into account if you apply for help. Also, the rules must not discriminate against you because of your age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

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.
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.
A report is now being prepared by the Planning Inspector for the Secretary of State and we expect a decision on the project at the start of the summer. A disabled facilities grant will be no more than £30,000 in England and £36,000 in Wales. However, your local authority can top up this up, as it can give you other help with home improvements .
