A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down Scheme Development Consent Order





NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that, at the dates, times and locations set out below, issue specific hearing will be held by the Examining Authority for the examination of the application made by Highways England for a Development Consent Order (“the DCO”) for the A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down Scheme (“the Application”).

The Application was made to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government (via the Planning Inspectorate) under sections 14(1)(h), 22(1)(a) and 37 of the Planning Act 2008 on 19 October 2018 and was accepted by the Planning Inspectorate for examination on 16 November 2018. The Application has been given the Planning Inspectorate reference number TR010025.


The Application seeks development consent for the A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down Scheme in the south west region, located within the administrative area of Wiltshire Council. The main aspects of the Scheme comprise:

The DCO would authorise the creation of a high quality two-lane dual carriageway on the A303 trunk road between Amesbury and Berwick Down in Wiltshire ("the Scheme"). The Scheme would be approximately 8 miles (13km) long and would comprise the following key components:

  1. A northern bypass of Winterbourne Stoke with a viaduct over the River Till valley;
  2. A new junction between the A303 and A360 to the west of and replacing the existing Longbarrow roundabout;
  3. A twin-bore tunnel approximately 2 miles (3.3km) long, past Stonehenge; and
  4. A new junction between the A303 and A345 at the existing Countess roundabout.

If the DCO is made by the Secretary of State for Transport, it would allow Highways England, for the purpose of constructing, operating and maintaining the Scheme, to acquire compulsorily interests in and rights over land, including the power to create and acquire new rights over land, and to take possession of and to use land temporarily.

The DCO would also make provision for development, which would constitute associated development together with other ancillary matters, including those related to the diversion and stopping up of lengths of existing highways in the vicinity of the route, the classification and re-classification of highways including the trunking and de-trunking of sections of highway, the application of speed limits, the stopping up of private means of access and the creation of new private means of access, and the application and disapplication of legislation relating to the project.
