A417 ‘missing link’

6th December 2017

The Roads Minister, Jesse Norman MP, met today with all six of Gloucestershire’s MPs – Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, Laurence Robertson, Alex Chalk, Richard Graham, Mark Harper and David Drew.

The Minister plans to publish a number of alternative routes for consultation in February 2018. Any organisation, group or member of the public will have more than adequate opportunity to make comments about the project during the six-week consultation period. The Minister plans to announce his preferred route later next year.

The MPs are determined that this road scheme should be built. They are particularly conscious that this will be an expensive road scheme which needs to be constructed in an economical way otherwise it will never happen.

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.
