Volume 448: debated on Monday 3 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the conclusions were of the stage 1 study into the improvements of the A120(T) in relation to the proposed Bathside Bay development in Harwich; when a decision will be made on formal planning permission; and if he will make a statement. (81100)

Planning permission for the Bathside Bay development was granted on 29 March this year—subject to final approval of an appropriate road scheme by Ministers.

The developer-funded study into options to improve the A120(T) in relation to the proposed development is still under way. It is expected to be completed in September. In the light of this, the Secretary of State will decide which, if any of the road options, should be put to public consultation, which could then take place early next year.
