Just a reminder that the consultation period on NH’s proposed changes to the DCO has started and ends on the 27th February. There is a consultation meeting at Warcop Parish Hall on Wednesday 1st February, 3 – 7pm. I hope that you will attend if possible and then respond either online or via paper copies.
From what I can see, most of the changes seem sensible and straightforward, and the most significant perhaps is the re-design of the Langrigg junction, as well as a reduction of the Warcop junction near the army playing field.. However, no sign here of the section from Café 66 to Dyke Nook Cottage being put behind the line of trees, or the maintaining of the existing Brough Hill Fair site. It will be interesting to examine the drawings of the new Warcop junction in greater detail than the brochure gives.
Here are a couple of useful links and the dates of all the public meetings:
Gilling West Village Hall, High St, Gilling West, Richmond, DL10 5JJ
Kirkby Thore Memorial Hall, Kirkby Thore, CA10 1UE
Warcop Village Hall, Appleby-in-Westmorland, CA16 6NX
Penrith Methodist Church, Wordsworth St, Penrith, CA11 7QY
Hope this is useful.
