And it is not good news.
Planning Act 2008 (PA2008) – Sections 116 and 117 and The Infrastructure
Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017 – Regulation
Application by Highways England for an Order Granting Development Consent
for the A303 Amesbury to Berwick Down
Notice of the decision by the Secretary of State
I write to notify you of the publication of the Secretary of State’s decision and
statement of reasons and the Order granting development consent in relation to the
above application.
The Secretary of State as the decision maker under s103 and s104 of the PA2008 has
decided that development consent should be granted and therefore has made an
Order under s114(1)(a) of PA2008.

The Stonehenge Alliance have issued this statement:

The Stonehenge Alliance deeply regrets a decision that will send shock messages around the world. It will breach:
• the UK’s international treaty obligation (World Heritage Convention 1972) not to damage the WHS;
• the UK’s legal commitment to address Climate Change.
We shall study carefully the detail of the Transport Secretary’s Decision Letter and the formal Report and recommendations of the Examiners of the road scheme, before meeting with colleagues to discuss any next steps.
With your fantastic support we shall continue with our campaign and petition in the hope that there may still be time in which to change that decision.
