Isham By-pass (Northamptonshire)

Volume 566: debated on Tuesday 16 July 2013

It gives me great pleasure to present a petition signed by 833 of my constituents. It reads as follows:

The Humble Petition of residents of Isham, Northamptonshire and the surrounding areas,


That there is an urgent need to construct the A509 Isham by-pass, not only to relieve the current unacceptable number of traffic movements through the village, but also mindful of the extra proposed traffic movements which will occur due to:

The 5,500 houses that are being built at Cranford; the 3,500 houses that are being built at the station in Wellingborough; the proposed 3,000 house development off Niort Way in Wellingborough; the proposed industrial site development at Appleby Farm in Wellingborough with an estimated daily vehicle movement of 2,000, the majority of which will be lorries; the widening of the A14 road at the A509 Junction one mile from Isham.

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House urges the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Northamptonshire County Council and the Borough Council of Wellingborough work together to ensure that the Isham A509 bypass is constructed imminently.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c.
