NEMMDR Statutory order viewing by arrangement

October 2020

The Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) and the Side Road Order (SRO) notices were first published on 13 August 2020, however, due to a procedural irregularity, both notices were republished on the 15 October 2020 (along with landowner letters and notices in the press) with an objection period for both extended until 27 November 2020.

The CPO deals with the land needed permanently for the road, together with certain interests or rights required over the land for construction. The SRO allows for the necessary changes to the existing highway network required by the new road.

Next steps

Depending on whether there are any sustained objections, the next stage of the order process will be a public inquiry. The timescales for which are currently unknown, but will be communicated in due course.

Subject to the above, anticipated timescales for the start of construction of the new road will begin in spring 2022 with an anticipated completion due early summer 2024.

Advance works

There will be various preparatory works to be undertaken on site before the above dates, such as preparing construction compounds, undertaking various utility diversions and fencing etc.

Copies of the CPO/SRO Orders and associated drawings are available to view by appointment (unless we're under Covid restrictions) at Leicestershire County Council (County Hall, Leicester Road, Glenfield) and Melton Borough Council (Parkside, Melton Mowbray). Contact us on 0116 305 0001.

They're also available online at Compulsory Purchase Order and Side Roads Order process.
