A69 Update- Feb 2019 

Highways England have announced the withdrawal of their plans for the Styford roundabout and Shaw House cross overs. They intend to consult with residents and businesses and return with an amended scheme.

Consequently, the Public Enquiry is cancelled but should the new scheme not be acceptable to residents we will be able to go through the same process again – get sufficient objections to force another enquiry.

In the meantime the working group is still preparing and initially is concentrating on ‘What is it we want?’


Following a number of reported incidents -  please consider if it is your dog that is 

  • Barking incessantly
  • Leaving Dog Poo in someones garden
  • Being allowed to roam free

If so - please have some respect for your neighbours and take some responsibility for your pet (s)
