The panel’s main focus is to discuss and consider the design and mitigation of the High Speed Two (HS2) project in the Colne Valley. The panel will also consider the potential implementation of additional environmental mitigation measures that could be delivered alongside the mitigation already proposed by HS2.
The panel members will work collaboratively to achieve a more distinctive and sensitive outcome in the Colne Valley. Membership to the panel includes both statutory and non-statutory organisations, and at present consists of the following groups:
High Speed Two (HS2) Limited
Department for Transport
London Borough of Hillingdon

Matters addressed at the panel will change and evolve to reflect the development stages of the project with the terms of reference to be updated accordingly.
