The Local Planning Authority is required to undertake a formal period of public consultation prior to deciding the outcome of the planning application.

Anyone can respond to a planning consultation. Formal comments on the planning application should be sent to the Local Planning Authority by emailing: PlanningM6J10@walsall.gov.uk.

What’s next

If planning consent is secured, we will complete the detailed design of the scheme, taking into account any planning conditions.

Why we need this scheme

The M6 junction 10 currently experiences significant congestion and traffic delays, particularly during morning and evening peak times. Road capacity problems have been identified as one of the main transport issues facing the Black Country within the West Midlands Local Transport Plan. Highways England is working collaboratively with Walsall council to deliver the scheme within the current budget and to meet commitments made in our Delivery Plan and Walsall Council’s major transport scheme priorities for the period 2015-19.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:
  • reduce congestion, rat-running and queues to create a freer-flowing road network
  • support economic growth by improving access to motorways and Walsall Enterprise Zone sites, attracting new business and development to the area
  • provide a safe, well maintained road network
  • avoid future major maintenance by replacing the bridges now
  • improve conditions for cyclists, pedestrians and horse riders at the junction
