This Parish Council, along with Bywell, recently objected to the proposals to upgrade the junction of the A69 at the A68 and B6530, and the restrictions that would be imposed at the A69 junction at Shaw House.

This was based upon the likely impact to the journey times and distances for Stocksfied residents who wish to join the A69 to travel east at Shaw House or to cross the A69 at that location. The Council has been informed by the Dept for Transport that the Secretary of State intends to hold an Inquiry into the proposal. Objectors will have an opportunity to be heard in person or submit written comments. Further details about the Inquiry will be made available in due course.
