HS2 in Sheffield-Deadline for Consultation

21 Jan

In January this year the Secretary of State for Transport announced his preferred route for Phase 2 of HS2. Phase 2 will connect Birmingham to Leeds and Manchester via a High Speed Rail Line. The proposed route can be found here. A factsheet which covers the route between Tinsley and Cold Hiendley can be found here.

In light of the announcement, the government launched a consultation into the proposed route which started on the 17th of July 2013 and will end on the 31st of January 2014. The purpose of the consultation is to seek the views and thoughts of members of the public and wider stakeholders on the proposed route and ensure that all comments and views are considered in order to shape the Secretary of State’s decision on the route towards the end of 2014. More information can be found on the HS2 website here.

To complement the consultation, we are holding a number of information events up and down the proposed route so that members of the public can take the opportunity to speak to members of the HS2 team who can answer any concerns or questions you might have. There will also be a number of HS2 technical specialists at the information events who can talk attendees through specific technical issues.

We are keen for as many people as possible to be made aware of these events and to take the chance to pop along. I would therefore like to inform you that your closest event will be held at the English Institute of Sport Sheffield Coleridge Road, Sheffield S9 5DA on both the 8th of November between 12pm and 8pm, and the 9th of November between 10am and 5pm. If you are unable to attend this event, further events at other locations along the line can be found here. Please do come along to an alternative event if you are able.

If you cannot make the events, please take the opportunity to look over the information on the HS2 website, which I linked above, which will explain more about contributing to the consultation and what the proposals are all about.

Yours faithfully

David Orr-Ewing

Community and Stakeholder Engagement Adviser for HS2
