In the 2016 Autumn Statement, it was announced that East Riding of Yorkshire Council had been awarded feasibility funding from the Department for Transport's Large Local Major Schemes Fund to develop a transport improvement scheme for the A164 and Jock's Lodge junction. It was one of only 12 proposals across England to receive feasibility funding.
This funding was used to develop an Outline Business Case, which set out a preferred scheme option and explained how this could be delivered and whether it would offer good value for money. East Riding of Yorkshire's Outline Business Case for an improvement scheme on the A164 and Jock's Lodge junction was submitted to the Department for Transport in December 2017.
In May 2018 it was announced that the scheme had successfully secured over £40 million construction funding from the Department for Transport with the remainder of the scheme costs being funded by the council.
A public consultation on a shortlist of potential scheme options was held in November 2017. East Riding of Yorkshire Council used the results of this public consultation, combined with economic data and traffic modelling, to develop a preferred scheme for Jock's Lodge and the A164.
Further public information events were held in February 2020 in order to update residents on the current scheme design and to gather feedback in advance of planning submission in March 2020. The Planning Application number for the scheme is 20/01073/STPLF. This can accessed electronically at https://newplanningaccess.eastriding.gov.uk/newplanningaccess/.
