We would like to invite you to an event about HS2 to find out more about the project and what it means for your local area.
On 15 November the Government announced the preferred route for the proposed High Speed Two (HS2) railway from Crewe to Manchester and West Midlands to Leeds – known as Phase 2b.
As part of this announcement, the Government launched two consultations on:
- seven substantial changes being proposed to the route; and
- the property compensation and assistance schemes being proposed for people affected by the plans.
The consultations will run until 9 March 2017.
We are holding a series of information events along the whole Phase 2b route to support the consultations. The table below provides details of these events.
We hope you will take this opportunity to talk to the project team about the proposed property schemes and the changes to the Phase 2b route from Crewe to Manchester and West Midlands to Leeds.
