Proposed Ashbourne relief road

We're proposing to build a new road to help tackle congestion in Ashbourne.


The preferred route was chosen following a public consultation exercise based on options outlined in the Ashbourne Transport Study and would run from the A52 Mayfield Road, taking traffic slightly further away from the town centre, joining the A515 Buxton Road close to Sandybrook Hall.

As work to develop the proposals enters the next phase, we are requesting access to pockets of land so that ground investigations and survey work can be carried out.

Information gathered will be used to help engineers come up with the best design for the road – proposed as a single carriageway with separate provision for pedestrians and cyclists – and put together plans to minimise any disruption to wildlife and nature. All the information will be used to inform a future planning application and provide a more accurate estimate of costs so that options for funding can be investigated in the future.
