Supplementary Environmental Statement 2 and Additional Provision 3 Environmental Statement (Supplementary Environmental Information)
HS2 Ltd has identified a number of changes to the project. Amendments to the Bill have been made to reflect these changes.
The Supplementary Environmental Statement 2 (SES2) reports on the likely significant environmental effects of updated environmental information, changes to the scheme assumptions and changes within the existing powers and limits of the Bill. This includes a revised design of Euston station and other design changes in the London Borough of Camden.
The Additional Provision 3 Environmental Statement (AP3 ES) reports on the likely significant environmental effects of the amendments in the AP (i.e. amendments to the Bill which are outside the scope of the existing powers and limits of the Bill).
The SES2 and AP3 ES are separate environmental statements but have been produced as combined volumes.
This Supplementary Environmental Information is being deposited as supplementary information under Private Business Standing Order 224A of the House of Commons and Standing Order 83A of the House of Lords (Comments on environmental statement).
Please note, in the main ES, Volume 4 presented an assessment of the likely significant environmental effects that will occur in locations away from the route (i.e. outside the CFAs). As none of the SES2 design changes or AP3 amendments relate to off-route areas, off-route effects have been scoped out of the assessment. Consequently, the SES2 and AP3 ES does not contain a Volume 4.
