The Supplementary Environmental Statement 2 (SES2) and the Additional Provision 2 Environmental Statement (AP2 ES) are separate environmental statements, however they are presented together in combined reports in a number of volumes.
The SES2 reports on the likely significant environmental effects of updated environmental information and changes to the design and construction assumptions within the existing powers and limits of the High Speed Rail (West Midlands to Crewe) Bill.
The AP2 ES reports on the likely significant environmental effects of the amendments in the AP2 i.e. amendments to the High Speed Rail (West Midllands to Crewe) Bill which are outside the scope of the existing powers and limits of the Bill.
We are running a consultation on the SES2 and AP2 ES which closes at 11:45pm on 29 March 2019.
