Shrewsbury Colleges Co-location Planning Application
27th June 2008

SHREWSBURY & ATCHAM BOROUGH COUNCIL NEWS - A study of the likely impact on traffic of the proposed co-location of the two Shrewsbury colleges will cause delays in the planning process according to the local authority.

The planning application has generated a great deal of public interest and involvement. Because of the complex effects on the local road network of the traffic arising from the co-location, it has not been possible to take this planning application to a planning committee as speedily as SABC would wish.

In order to provide a detailed assessment of the traffic impact - particularly on Emstrey Roundabout - the Applicants, in close consultation with the Highways Agency, will be undertaking a more detailed modelling of the potential traffic flows. This will take time to produce and assess, hence it is unlikely that the completed modelling and conclusion will be completed before early autumn.

SABC is issuing this press release in order to inform Shrewsbury residents and interested groups of the regrettable but necessary delay in taking this planning application to a committee.

When the additional traffic information is received it will be placed on the Council's website for public viewing. The information's receipt will be highlighted on the homepage.
