A582/B5253 South Ribble Western Distributor and Realignment of Footpath Network - Approval for use of powers and preparation of Various Orders and Schemes including Compulsory Purchase Order

Design work and the progression of the planning application is ongoing for widening the A582/B5253 South Ribble Western Distributor. To maintain programme milestones and to ensure the scheme can be delivered, it is essential that the County Council has possession of all the necessary land. Early contact has been made with the landowners however, agreement may not be achievable in time or at all in addition it is likely that there will be a few small areas where the land ownership is unknown. Consequently, it may be necessary to use Compulsory Purchase powers available to the County Council, in particular under the Highways Act 1980, to acquire the land.

Additionally a Side Roads Order under the Highways Act 1980 will also be required to enable alterations to be made to the existing highways and private means of access. Other Schemes and Orders under the Highways Act may also be required.
