When this junction was originally built, the authorities didn’t agree to an exit to and from Coventry, because the local road infrastructure couldn’t cope. The only thing that’s changed since then is a substantial increase in the volume of traffic. With little or no improvements to the road infrastructure around Sapcote, Stoney Stanton and Burbage.

For some of us, the opportunity to travel to and from Coventry at junction 2 would be very convenient – However, without significant improvements to the roads around our villages, we’ll see huge congestion and increased traffic on our already overloaded village roads. We’ll also see commuters from other villages using us as a shortcut to the motorway.

No, all these proposals have to go through formal consultations and these have not started yet. At this point we can all make a difference in making the case against these developments as strong as possible. There are plenty of examples where communities have succeeded in stopping developments or ensuring the objections are taken into account.

Category: Action group

There are a number of ways to object to these proposals. Mainly this will involve writing to your MP, local council and to the developers themselves. This can be done at anytime, however during formal consultations all objections have to be considered and reported upon.

The action group will try and help you through this process, letting you know when the best time would be to write and we’ll provide letter templates to help you. We’ll also let you know who to write to.

We hope so! Imagine if everyone raised their objections to these plans, which will change our village beyond recognition, our voice would be incredibly loud and strong! One thing is certain – if we sit back and do nothing, it will be a done deal. Stoney Stanton needs you!

appropriate time.

The Parish Council are working incredibly hard to contest these plans. They have asked for support from Stoney Stanton residents, to allow people to raise their concerns, and to get involved with the issues that will affect us all. Consequently an action group was formed as part of Stoney Stanton Community Association.

Amongst other things:
• Destruction of the natural environment and farmland.
• Huge impact on traffic in the village, and the local area.
• Massive pressure on current infrastructure (school, doctors etc.).
• Increased noise and air pollution.
• Huge increase in the size of Stoney Stanton and Sapcote
