Decision details

To implement a red route on the Castle Donington Relief Road, Castle Donington.

Decision Maker: Director of Environment and Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

The introduction of a red route on the private roads around Castle Donington airport by East Midlands Airport Authority meant that there was an immediate safety concern on the surrounding highway network. It was therefore decided to introduce a red route on the highway network as an experimental traffic regulation order (ETRO) in 2019.
The ETRO has now expired and proved to be successful and for the restrictions to remain in place they need to be made permanent. Due to a delay in making the order permanent the order was re-advertised 2022.

Decision:

That the red route on the Castle Donington Relief Road, Castle Donington be made permanent.

Alternative options considered:

The scheme was advertised on 28 March 2022 in the local press, letters sent to all frontages affected and was active on Leicestershire County Council’s website for 3 weeks (until 18 April 2022). No objections were received.
