There has been much in the media about HS2 lately, with growing discontent regarding the project, but we must not become complacent.
The publication of the Working Draft Environmental Statement (WDES), and associated consultation announcement, anticipated for this month have been delayed as DfT weren’t ready before the party conference season started.
A parliamentary slot to launch the WDES is anticipated in mid-October, immediately following the party conferences. HS2 will likely hold their next formal public information (PI) event in Woodlesford during mid-November. The WDES documents and PI event will communicate details of the construction and logistics associated with the viaducts and tunnels in our area.
Given these dates have slipped, and many people still have unanswered questions about the scheme and the compensation available, HS2 are holding a further drop-in event at the Oulton Institute from 2pm – 8pm on Thursday 27 September 2018. Those new to the area are encouraged to drop-in at some point during the day to see their plans and ask questions regarding the likely impact on the area.
