Details of High Court Order and further case management of the proceedings

This High Court Order was made following the Claimants’ Substantive Amendment Application dated 15 June 2020 and following a hearing which took place on 24, 25 and 27 August 2020 (“the Hearing of the Substantive Amendment Application”) and comprises 2 documents (i) the sealed Order (dated 4 September 2020 and sealed by the court on 18 September 2020) and (ii) an updated ‘Plan A’.

Following the Hearing of the Substantive Amendment Application, the High Court extended (i) in time and (ii) geographically the injunction order dated 22 June 2020 to prevent protesters trespassing on HS2 land and obstructing access to HS2’s worksites at Harvil Road. The specific terms of the injunction are set out in the Order. This injunction remains in place until trial or further order or, if earlier, a long-stop date of 4 September 2022.

The court has also made directions as to the future case management of the proceedings which includes directing that a Case Management Conference takes place on the first available date after 30 October 2020. Any person who wishes to become a named Defendant or who is interested in these proceedings should review the terms of the Order carefully (and comply with any relevant directions) and monitor this website for further information.

Electronic copies of the applications and evidence filed in these proceedings are also available on this website. Any person who is unable to obtain electronic copies of documents, or who wishes to obtain hard copies of documents, should contact HS2’s solicitors (Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP) on 020 7497 9797 or by email to ShonaJenkins@eversheds-sutherland.com.

The court injunction is necessary to help us keep the public and our staff safe at our work sites. There have been numerous incidents of trespass and obstruction, including incidents where protesters have climbed onto vehicles, lay down in the path of vehicles and climbing underneath vehicles. All of which have the potential to cause serious injury and health and safety is HS2’s highest concern.

Please note that this injunction does not restrict activity on land that is not covered by the injunction. The land subject to the injunction is the land described in the Order and set out on the updated injunction plan ‘Plan A’.

To help explain the map, please note the following: the land shown coloured pink, green and blue is covered by the first part of the injunction. This part prevents people from entering onto that land without the consent of HS2. The abbreviation GVD in the key stands for General Vesting Declaration, this is a means by which land can be acquired compulsorily for the HS2 project.

The land shown coloured orange shows the public highway and is covered by the second part of the injunction. This part prevents people from substantially interfering with the passage by HS2/the Secretary of State and our contractors and employees etc. to and from our sites (shown coloured pink, green and blue) from the public highway.
