HS2 Phase One planning forum

The forum provides the opportunity for local authorities, the nominated undertaker and representatives from government departments to cooperate and carry out work for Phase One of the project.

The planning forum meets bi-monthly with a forward programme of meetings and anticipated agenda items to reflect the development stages of the project.

Invitees to the forum include officers from qualifying local authorities, High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd and the Department for Transport. Meetings are chaired by an independent Chairman, Ted Allett, who has over 30 years’ experience in the environment and planning industries.

In view of the wide scope of the environmental minimum requirements and the different specialisms involved, the forum has a number of sub-groups, which meet as necessary. The current active sub-groups are:
