As residents will know, I am working with the local community in Farthinghoe to push for their much-needed and long-overdue bypass to be built as soon as possible.
I have been liaising with the County Council, our local LEP the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership, and our new Sub-National Transport Body the England Economic Heartland Strategic Alliance to press a joint bid for funding for the bypass through the Department for Transport’s Major Road Network Fund.
I have been informed this morning, in a letter from the DfT, that the deadline for funding bids through the MRN is the 31st July 2019. I have therefore emailed the relevant people on NCC, SEMLEP, and EEHSA to request that they honour their commitment to submit a bid for funding and that they do so by the deadline.
You can read this email below, and please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if I can be of any help or assistance with any query or issue.
