An Open Letter to SRAG

What exactly are you campaigning for – What Do SRAG Want »


Stratford Residents Action Group and The Stratford-upon-Avon South Western Relief Road

There was a SRAG meeting at Luddington Village Hall last night which unfortunately I could not attend.

I know that SRAG were trying to get as many people as possible to object to the Western Relief Road Scoping Application but could anyone tell me where they stand on a relief road on the West of Stratford?

Looking at their website ( it appears they are against a relief road mainly due to the visual impact, the viability and the effect on tourism a new South-West relief road will have.

When they say this, are they talking about a relief road in general or just the one as shown on the (unofficial) proposed route map below?

Why are they so anti the scoping procedure, could the findings of this not support their views?

Would they object to a South Western Relief Road moved further out from Stratford, as demonstrated in the (unofficial) alternative route map below?

If anyone who was at the meeting could let me know where SRAG stand on these things and what their plans are on a Stratford-upon-Avon South Western Relief Road, please let me know.
