Gedling Access Road Compulsory Purchase Order and Side Roads Order 2018

Closed 21 Dec 2018

Opened 7 Nov 2018

Overview

Nottinghamshire County Council is working on a project to construct the A6211 Gedling Access Road which will connect the B684 Mapperley Plains in a south-easterly direction for a distance of 3.8km to its junction with the A612 at Trent Valley Road and Nottingham Road.

The primary objective of the GAR is that it will enable the sustainable redevelopment of the former Gedling Colliery / Chase Farm site and adjoining land for mixed-use purposes by providing safe and adequate access to the proposed residential, employment and community related uses proposed for the site.

The secondary objective of the GAR is that it will also provide a 'bypass' link to the east of Gedling, linking the area with the wider road network and consequently Nottingham City Centre.

The transport user benefit appraisal for GAR indicates that journey time savings and other safety and efficiency benefits are worth at least £73million, and this generates a benefit to cost ratio (BCR) of 2.4 against the total scheme costs.

Why We Are Consulting

There are over 60 plots of land to be acquired permanently to build the Gedling Access Road (GAR) and less than 30 where rights are to be acquired. More than half of all the land plots are in public sector ownership and the remaining third party land comprises of 15 individual land owners.

In order to secure land required to construct the GAR a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) and Side Roads Order (SRO) will be required. In accordance with guidance published in 2018 (updated from 2015 to reflect legislative changes and case law) by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) NCC has consulted with stakeholders during the process and are seeking to acquire the necessary land and rights by agreement where possible.

A copy of the order, accompanying plans and other associated Orders may also be seen at all reasonable hours at the offices of the acquiring authority of Nottinghamshire County Council at County Hall, Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 7QP
