Progress report

Our proposals for the A38 Derby Junctions were accepted by the Planning Inspectorate on 21 May 2019 for formal examination. This is a significant milestone for our scheme, as it means we’ve taken a big step towards delivering the much-needed improvements on this stretch of road. You can view our planning application on the Planning Inspectorate’s website.

Relevant Representations have now been received by the Planning Inspectorate regarding. You can view a list of all those registered to put their case on A38 Derby Junctions together with Relevant Representations.

All documents from the Preliminary Meeting, which was held on Tuesday 8 October 2019 and helped the Examining Authority determine how our application should be examined, can be found in the 'Documents' area on the Planning Inspectorate's website. Invitations to this meeting were sent to Interested Parties. Whether or not an Interested Party chose to attend the Preliminary Meeting, they were sent details of how to take part in the examination.

What's next?

Over the next few months the Planning Inspectorate will make arrangements to carry out an Examination of our application. This will be led by an Examining Authority made up of one or more Examining Inspectors. The Planning Inspectorate will then have 6 months to carry out the Examination.

You can find more information about this process on the Planning Inspectorate’s National Infrastructure Planning webpage. An Examination Timetable has now been supplied, which shows the dates of all events taking place. The Examination Timetable is also set out in an annex to the Rule 8 letter that was sent to Interested Parties at the start of the Examination.

Why we need this scheme

The Kingsway, Markeaton and Little Eaton junctions on the A38 currently suffer from heavy congestion. We are making improvements to these junctions to relieve this congestion.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:
  • reduce congestion
  • increase capacity
  • improve journey time reliability
  • improve road safety
  • support local regeneration and development plans

Guidance for people whose property may be affected by one of our schemes

Large scale or major public works alongside or close to a property can reduce its value, making it hard to sell at market rate.
