Gillian Keegan’s office has today confirmed that the meeting has been postponed by the Department of Transport and both councils have been informed.
There is no date as yet for the rescheduled meeting, a spokesperson for the MP said.
It comes after Highways England rejected both options put to it for a new northern route or a southern upgrade to the existing A27.
