Local professionals on-hand to assist with relief road
Published January 25th, 2019
The funding has been secured for Shrewsbury North West Relief Road and land and business owners in the area are being reminded of their rights if their property is affected by the project.
“This road has been in the offing for a while now and with the funding in place it will be full steam ahead,” said chartered surveyor Mark Morison of Berrys.
Sources suggest that construction could begin as soon as next year and the project will take about two years to build.
“There will be plenty of activity ahead of the construction phase and if you think you are affected you should be aware of your rights to compensation even if your land is not physically taken for the road.
“Early engagement of professional advice is recommended to ensure opportunities to mitigate against the impact of the scheme are maximised and valuation impacts fully understood in what can be a highly complicated area,” Mark said.
“Professional fees can be reclaimed for representation and an experienced agent can help take the stress out of the situation and ensure any loss is fully accounted for.”
The impact of the scheme will not, however, be negative for everyone.
“The link road will also bring forward strategic land opportunities and advice to identify how these could take shape should be taken to ensure long term objectives are identified and, where possible, that the scheme can account for them,” added Stuart Thomas, head of planning at Berrys.
