The Supplementary Environmental Statement (SES) and the Additional Provision Environmental Statement (AP ES) are separate environmental statements, however they are presented together in combined reports, in a number of volumes.
The SES (Part 1) reports on the likely significant environmental effects of updated environmental information, changes to the design and construction assumptions within the existing powers and limits of the High Speed Rail (West Midlands to Crewe) Bill.
The AP ES (Part 2) reports on the likely significant environmental effects of the amendments in the AP i.e. amendments to the High Speed Rail (West Midlands to Crewe) Bill which are outside the scope of the existing powers and limits of the Bill.
This volume contains 5 reports and associated map books, where relevant. The reports describe the likely significant environmental effects of the changes and amendments in the SES and AP ES in geographical areas (known as ‘community areas’).
