HS2 Phase 2a Supplementary Environmental Statement and Additional Provision Environmental Statement (March 2018)

Includes the Supplementary Environmental Statement and Additional Provision Environmental Statement and associated information for HS2 Phase 2a.

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.

Since deposit of the Supplementary Environmental Statement 1 and Additional Provision 1 Environmental Statement, further changes and amendments to the Phase 2a scheme have been proposed. The environmental assessment of these changes and amendments are presented in the Supplementary Environmental Statement 2 and Additional Provision 2 Environmental Statement.
