Wiltshire Council: Have your say in Future Chippenham

22nd January 2021 / News archive

Wiltshire Council Public Consultation
Friday 15 January 2021 to 5pm, Friday 12 March 2021

Wiltshire Council
is seeking your views on three road route options for a potential new distributor road located to the south and east of Chippenham. The road would provide a high-quality road link connecting the north east and southern parts of the town to the A350 and improvements to Junction 17 of the M4.

Initial work indicates that a distributor road could bring significant benefits; it would directly unlock land to support much needed housing development and reduce traffic congestion in the town centre, improving connectivity and travel within and around the town. These benefits would help underpin the future sustainable growth of Chippenham and increase opportunities for residents and businesses. Wiltshire Council have called this programme Future Chippenham.

To support the development of the scheme, Wiltshire Council has been successful in securing £75 million of government funding.

Wiltshire Council would like to hear your views to help them inform a decision about which of the three route options within each zone could be taken forward to the next stage of the development process.
