Time is running out for a say on HS2


TIME is running out for people who want to contribute to the public consultation on the likely impact of the HS2 rail line on Warrington.
The consultation ends on December 21, and HS2 Ltd – the company driving the proposals – is urging people in and around the town to make sure they don’t miss out.
Nearly 7,000 people have attended the six-week programme of community events at venues between the West Midlands, Manchester and Leeds – including Warrington.
Hundreds of responses have already submitted.
But more are invited – specifically on HS2 Ltd’s
* Working Draft Environmental Statement, which describes the design of the railway and reports on the impacts of its construction and operation, alongside the measures proposed to reduce and monitor these impacts.
* Working Draft Equality Impact Assessment Report, which considers the potential effects of the construction and operation of the railway on people with protected characteristics.
Leonie Dubois, HS2’s head of consultation and engagement said: “HS2’s arrival is becoming integral to local plans in Warrington. It is already driving employment opportunities with 91 businesses in the North West now working on the early stages of the project.
“Ensuring that Warrington gets the very best of what HS2 will bring is integral. People in the area have a valuable role to play as their feedback will help to shape our final plans for the railway. This is a once in a generation opportunity and I encourage communities to have their say in this transformative project which will create a legacy for future generations.”
Consultation responses can be submitted by freepost, online, or via email. For more information on how to respond to the consultation, please visit www.hs2.org.uk/phase2b
