Another chance to have a say on HS2 rail line


RESIDENTS have until December 21 to respond to the HS2 environmental statement consultation – and Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council is urging local people to do so.
Reference documents are available in Culcheth Library, Birchwood Library, Golborne Library and Lymm Library and a series of information events on the consultation, including more details, will be held during November.
These will be at:
Rixton with Glazebrook Community Hall, Wednesday November 14, 2-8 pm; Golborne Parkside Sports and Community Club, Tuesday, November 27, 2- 8 pm;
Culcheth Sports Club, Wednesday November 28, 2-8pm;
High Legh Village Hall, Friday November 30, 2-8 pm
Cllr Margaret Webber, chairman of Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council, said documents for the consultation could be found by searching www.gov.uk for “Policy Papers and
Consultations 11 October 2018”, or “HS2 Phase 2b working draft environmental statement”.
There were a number of ways to respond – online, by completing a response form, emailing environment2b@ipsos-mori.com or writing to Freepost, HS2 Phase 2B Environmental Consultation.
She said: “There are a number of documents – a starting point is HS2 Phase 2b working draft Environmental Statement volume 2: map books.
“These are for all the areas – we are Risley to Bamfurlong which follows Broomedge to Glazebrook. Maps start around page 22.
“Earlier this year there was an HS2 Event at Culcheth Sports Club with maps which now have more detail. Wigshaw Lane is still blocked with a diversion to the A574 Warrington Road, the only HS2 crossing point in the village.
“The elevations and cuttings are shown, as are the construction
compounds, the land potentially required during construction and Public Rights of Way stopped or diverted.
“Please keep a copy of any comments that you make as they will be useful for us in our response.
“We have always opposed the Golborne Link because of the very damaging impact it would have on our villages, with no benefit.
“This information is not just for Culcheth, Glazebury and Croft residents and businesses but for those along the route from the South to the North of Warrington and in fact for anyone who travels through our villages.”
