HS2 - Consultation

HS2 - Consultation extended

The consultation on the Environmental Statement has been extended to 10 February after HS2 Ltd failed to distribute 877 pages of documents from electronic versions of the consultation documents. The company had claimed it had corrected the errors by 16 December, but the Commons Standing Orders Committee was told that errors still persisted. HS2 said it was happy to comply with the ruling but claimed:

“The pages that were briefly missing from the Environmental Statement memory sticks would not have prevented anyone from being able to respond to the consultation.”

  1. It is encouraging to note that CPRE has taken a more positive stance in challenging a number of important issues, as evidenced by S Spiers comments in The Times.
