Someone pointed out that I hadn't written anything about the Wantage Eastern Link Road through Crab Hill and several people pointed out erros so I thought I ought to send an update.
First the corrections: -
Now, Wantage Eastern Link Road;-
In February 2018, HM Government announced that the Council’s Marginal Viability Housing Infrastructure Fund (MVHIF) bid had been successful and that a £7 million contribution to ensure that the link road was built would be forthcoming. Well, that wasn't quite true.
Although successful with the bid, the amount of funding eventually awarded was lower than the original bid amount. Of the £7.71 million, Homes England granted the council £1.951 million.
This should still be sufficient to finish the road, but it is contingent on several draft conditions, currently being negotiated between the District and County Councils and Homes England, as outlined below;
So it should be built by 2022, but the proposed changes to the Section 106 agreement mentioned in the earlier email may affect it. Anyway - who knows what will happen after the Election!
For details on any major development please go to our Current Developments Page.
For updates on road closures see https://one.network/ (previously Roadworks.org).
Finally - there is a french market in Wantage tomorrow, 21 November, if you want any ideas for Christmas presents.
Thanks for reading.
