I’m a business owner
We are currently negotiating with those directly affected by the road widening scheme. A Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) is currently in place and those affected have been contacted.
Plans for the CPO and documents relating to this can be found on our plans page. All widening will take place on the eastern side of the road. Signs will be put up to inform traffic that businesses on Great Howard Street are open as usual. Alternative access arrangements to businesses along the route will be explored where required.
When appointed, our contractor will have a 'stakeholder liaison officer' who will be responsible for resolving any concerns businesses may have during the works.
When this scheme is completed there will be notable benefits for local business due to a better and more reliable transport network.
