DIRFT plans outlined

THE chairman of Kilsby Parish Council has said he will aim to get the best deal for the village as plans for DIRFT III are revealed.

Cllr Reg Dunn is hoping for improved traffic calming measures.

He said: “We know these plans are going to get the go-ahead, so we have to fight for the best possible deal for the people of Kilsby.

“The lorries coming from DIRFT do cause a lot of disruption and hopefully we can get some traffic calming measures.”

The entire development could create around 9,000 new jobs and will take around 15 years to build.

Members of the public have until June 18 to submit their views. Visit visit dirftiii.com for more details.
