From Highways England:
'Highways England is a government-owned company responsible for operating, maintaining and improving England’s motorways and major A-roads. We are undertaking billions of pounds of investment on the strategic road network.
The A12 Chelmsford to A120 widening scheme (the proposed scheme) will improve journeys between junction 19 (Boreham Interchange) and junction 25 (Marks Tey Interchange).
This Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC) sets out how we will consult local communities for the proposed scheme. It provides details about how you, residents, businesses and interested parties, can take part in the consultation and how feedback from consultees will be used to influence our proposed design.
To make sure we approach our consultation in the very best way for the local communities, we have consulted the following local authorities in the area of the proposed scheme on a draft version of this SoCC:
Braintree District Council
Chelmsford City Council
Colchester Borough Council
Essex County Council
Maldon District Council
We issued a draft version of this SoCC to those local authorities in accordance with Section 47(2) of the Planning Act 2008. The local authorities listed above were consulted because the proposed scheme will pass through their local authority area.
This document also gives you the background to the proposed scheme and how our application to construct it will progress.'
