In November 2017, following legal advice, the Government withdrew this proposal and instructed Highways England to explore the development of a lorry holding area solution through the normal planning process. 

This gives us the opportunity to completely reassess the scope of the requirement, including the scale of facilities and location of new lorry holding areas. 

We now have a new scheme in place where you can find out about the new proposals and how to have your say.


We will be publishing the consultation report for this project in the near future; however, the proposed option for the Lorry Area at Stanford West has been subject to a Judicial Review, the outcome of which means the proposal for the Lorry Area at Stanford West will not be taken forward at this time.
