‘Missing Link’ Consultation

1st February 2018

Following the Government’s announcement that Highways England will launch the ‘missing link’ consultation on 15 February 2018, local MP, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown commented:

“I am delighted that Highways England have finally announced a date for the consultation to be launched. This follows years of campaigning on my part to get to this stage.

“This consultation is extremely important because it is the first stage in the official process to build the A417 ‘missing link’.

“I would like to encourage as many people as possible to have their say in this consultation here. Once this has concluded on 29 March 2018, the Secretary of State will announce his preferred route and the detailed work on design, tendering and a possible public inquiry can all begin.

“The aim will be to encourage the Government to begin building as soon as the new Road Investment Strategy funding round begins in 2020.”

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email cliftonbrowng@parliament.uk if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.


Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
