Commenting, Steve said:

“Thank you to committee members who voted, as well as local Councillors Sally Anne Saunders and John Wood and council officers for making such a strong case.”

“The construction of a new A30 link road was my top priority when I first stood for election in 2015. I am delighted to have secured £79million of central government funding for this road and this decision today is another big step forward to seeing it happen.”

“Now the plans have been passed I am keen to see the work start on site on this major project as soon as possible.”
