Parish Council Response on the Government’s HS2 Proposals – June 2011
In 2011 the Parish Council appointed a Working Group to draft a response to the government’s HS2 consultation on the proposed route from London to Birmingham.

A Parish Meeting to discuss the HS2 proposals was held on Wednesday 15th June 2011 at St Leonards Parish Hall. Around 80 people attended the Parish Council Consultation Meeting. Cllr Nick Rose, our local Councillor and Leader Chiltern District Council gave a presentation on the flaws in the HS2 business case followed by Chris Brown who outlined the Parish Council’s draft response to the consultation. There was a lively discussion and suggestions on the form and content of the responses by both the Parish Council and by individuals to the Government’s HS2 Consultation.
