We shall stress on the advantages of building the bypass and at the same time try to counter any adverse reaction. My firm will present its ideas to the relevant authorities with the full realization that while it may not be their responsibility to buy these ideas, it is our responsibility to sell them. We will therefore try to have these authorities interested by stressing on the importance and urgency of the project (Deegan, 2001).
Our petition to the House of Commons will be aimed at facilitating any kind legislation needed to undertake this process. We shall present the risks posed to the inhabitants and the vehicle drivers by the numerous vehicles passing through the village centre. We shall particularly present the risk of fatal accidents to the residents, school children, senior citizens and other members of the Ponteland and Darras Hall community as well as the drivers.
In addition, we shall present our concerns about the centre's pollution, traffic congestion and the traffic slows down; leading to longer travel time, fuel wastage and loss of timing for the vehicles. We shall also present the overwhelming support this proposal has received, not only from the community, but also other organisations such as AA, RAC, the British Coach Operators Federation and the Freight Drivers Association.

We shall facilitate for the community and other volunteers to file a formal petition to the ex-checker, raising all our concerns and the advantages the project would bring to the general population.

Our petition to these authorities will be aimed at persuading them to change their policy of not building any more new roads. We shall enlighten them on how building some more roads will ease congestion on the roads, hence reduce fuel wastage. We shall make them realise that this particular bypass will make traffic management around the area very efficient. Moreover, it will spur economic activities especially when there is a smooth traffic flow and a disease-free environment.
To achieve this, we shall first hold protest meetings with road blockades for a few hours. Professional drivers associations will be used to exert pressure and lobby for the grant at the decision-making levels.
The environmental lobby groups
We realize that for this campaign to succeed, we cannot ignore environmentalists as well as other lobby groups opposed to the project. This is because this group is very powerful and vocal, they attracting a lot of celebrity and attention and the support of
