2021.12.20 A358 Consultation Deficiencies FINAL

Dualling of the A358 Southfields to the M5:

Parish Council response to the National Highways consultation

On 12 October National Highways launched a public consultation on their plans to dual the A358 from Southfields to the M5 at junction 25. The consultation ended on 22 November. Among the many changes the dualling would require to the local roads in the area is a proposal to close Broadway’s current direct connection to and from the A358 via Broadway Street and to make only minor changes at the Southfields roundabout.

After several public meetings and detailed discussion with other councils along the route Broadway Parish Council has now submitted its response to National Highways. This takes the form of 2 documents:

1. A comprehensive analysis by local councils, including Broadway’s, of what is wrong with National Highways’ proposals and practical and safe measures to improve local connectivity, including at Southfields.

2. Broadway Parish Council’s own proposals for ensuring that the village continues to be well connected to the local area, including to the M5 and Taunton and to communities to the east and south of the A358.

The full texts of these documents are to be found in the Highways section of this website.

National Highways’ consultation documents may be found at: https://highwaysengland.co.uk/our-work/south-west/a358-taunton-to-southfields/

The Parish Council will now be working with other local councils to prepare for the public inquiry into the A358. The views of villagers on the Parish Council’s response and on any wider issues can be sent to me, the Council Clerk, at:
