A1 Morpeth to Felton January 2019 consultation

Closed 4 Feb 2019

Opened 7 Jan 2019


In summer 2018 we held a public consultation on our plans to improve the A1 in Northumberland between Morpeth and Felton.

Since then, we have analysed the consultation feedback received, refined our design and completed the environmental assessments. Using the results of the environmental assessments we have now established what mitigation measures are required to minimise the impact of the scheme on the environment.

The environmental assessments show that two additional areas are required for essential environmental mitigation, which extend beyond the boundary of the current scheme proposals, set out in the Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) published for the public consultation held in summer 2018.

This targeted consultation is seeking your views on the additional areas required for the essential environmental mitigation. For more information, please read our consultation brochure found in the related documents section below.

For more information about the previous consultation held in 2018, please visit our webpage: www.highwaysengland.co.uk/A1inNorthumberland

We’d like to hear what you think about the two additional areas proposed for the essential environmental mitigation. The targeted consultation period starts on Monday 7 January 2019 and closes on Monday 4 February 2019.

We look forward to hearing your views.
