Harrogate & Knaresborough Congestion – An Update

Harrogate & Knaresborough Congestion – An Update

As many of you will be aware North Yorkshire County Council are currently seeking the public’s views on the impact of congestion in Harrogate and Knaresborough.  There have already been a vast array of views represented and the Council continue to gather further views and are consulting on a number of high level options, which include the possibility of strategic relief road being one of these options.  Following the conclusion of the public consultation on the 8th July we understand that the County Council will conduct necessary analysis before reporting to the Harrogate & Knaresborough Area Constituency Committee on the 29th August 2019, this report will set out the headline results of the consultation and the potential next steps on the project.

It is likely that on this meeting of the 29th August a number of recommendations will be made.  If it is decided that any of the current consultation options have scope to be taken forward to development detail then these recommendations will form the basis of a report to the County Council Executive, fundamentally it is at that meeting that a decision will be taken on the next steps.

Lister Haigh’s team of professional surveyors and valuers specialising in dealing with compensation of the highway schemes are closely monitoring the outcome of the public consultation, and, will aim to, where possible, keep our website updated as the consultation and subsequent analysis progresses.  For a full list of our services, or to find out how Lister Haigh can help you, do not hesitate to visit our website: or call a member of our specialist teams on 01423 86322.
