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.

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 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.

The consultation period on the Environmental Statement Addendum Annex 1 ended on 9 March 2020. Highways England has considered representations made in preparing its documents for the Public Inquiry. The modifications require changes to the Side Roads Order and Compulsory Purchase Orders .

Which Properties Your Local Authority Can Help Improve

From 8 December 2021 until 15 February 2022, we asked you for further feedback on our detailed proposals as part of our statutory public consultation. A total of 579 survey responses were received during the ten-week consultation period. More than 74% of survey respondents strongly agree or agree with the proposed improvements to M5 Junction 10. This shows a high level of support for the scheme and is consistent with the results from our non-statutory consultation, held in winter 2020. In autumn 2020, we undertook an options consultation to hear your views and opinions on options for the M5 Junction 10 Improvements Scheme. Overall, the options consultation demonstrated that the majority of participants (84%) agree that there is a clear need for the scheme.

The amount of grant you get depends on your income and savings, unless the work is to meet the needs of a disabled person under 16, or in some cases, over 16 but under 19. If you live in rented accommodation and are applying for a disabled facilities grant for work to a communal area of the property in which you live, you should make sure that you’re responsible for doing the work. If your landlord is responsible for doing the work, you’ll not be able to get a grant. To apply for a disabled facilities grant, you need to fill in a form which you can get from your local authority. They might ask for information and/or for tests to be carried out before you make a formal application. You might also need to get approval for building regulations, planning, listed building or conservation area purposes.

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.
