Summary

The Environmental Statement for the proposed Scheme to undertake improvements to Junctions 10a and 13 of the M6 Motorway.

An Environmental Statement is a detailed report of the findings of Environmental Impact Assessment for proposed development schemes. An Environmental Statement describes the existing environmental conditions and predicts the effects that a development scheme would have on both the man-made and natural environment.

The Environmental Statement also states measures proposed to reduce or eliminate adverse effects of the scheme on the environment where this is possible.

The production of an Environmental Statement is a requirement of European Directive 85/337/EEC amended by European Directive 97/11/EEC, and implemented into UK legislation under Section 105A of the Highways Act 1980 with subsequent amendments.
