The Government has revealed its preferred option for a tunnel under Stonehenge. The tunnel will run the entire length of the A303 - passing within a few hundred metres of the historic landmark. Campaigners say the 1.8 mile long tunnel isn't long enough and fear it could blight the historic landscape.

A £500 million regeneration plan for Hastings seafront will be unveiled today.

The Hastings Harbour Quarter project will transform the town while preserving and enhancing the town's maritime heritage.

It will also create jobs, extra parking and a working marina for up to 600 vessels.

The project aims to 1,300 homes including those for harbour workers.

A public consultation will be held about the size, location and access arrangements.

This is truly a transformational potential development for the people of Hastings. The intention is to construct a 'halo' development as an exemplar for seaside towns and communities. We believe that this development will provide many much-needed jobs and continue the regeneration of Hastings which has seen tremendous improvements in the last few years."

A campaign for measures to prevent noise pollution from the A34 in north Oxford has been taken to Parliament.

Residents in Wolvercote have complained about high levels of noise and disturbance from the A34 throughout the day and night, which can be exacerbated by the direction of the wind.

Over 700 local people signed a petition in 2015 urging the city and county councils to give their backing to plans for sound barriers.
