The Secretary of State has today given his consent to it. Further work on detailed design of the proposals and subsequently construction of the improvements can now commence.

Minchinhampton Town Fayre Sponsors

The little Cotswolds market town of Minchinhampton has been holding country fairs for 754 years. Witney Futures Group is proud to co-sponsor it (again) and to help keep this ancient and honourable tradition going. Not many environment and development consultancies can say that.

New contract appointment

Witney Futures Group is pleased to announce that its Managing Director Simon Witney has been appointed as Environment Lead for the M3 Junction 9 Development Consent Order. The DCO proposals are to improve the motorway junction at Winchester and adjacent to the South Downs National Park. Simon was appointed by Stantec under contract to undertake a variety of environmental planning advisory, review and technical support roles now including the M3 Junction 9. Stantec is working closely with VolkerFitzpatrick Ltd the contractor for the Scheme on behalf of National Highways. The Examination period for the Scheme formally starts next week.

First month with Stantec

So far the projects undertaken for Stantec have been interesting and diverse. They include two mixed use urban developments, a solar farm, a mixed housing and school application and a motorway interchange, with many more to follow. This is a testament to the wide range of projects that Stantec is engaged in and to which we are able to provide our experienced support.

New contract appointment

We are delighted that Witney Futures Group has been appointed to support Stantec with Environmental Consultancy services and strategic advice. This will focus on Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) and Environmental Statements and a range of consent applications including Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs).
