This document has been published as part of the High Speed Two Phase 2a: West Midlands to Crewe Working Draft Environmental Impact Assessment Report.
The Draft Code of Construction Practice sets out measures and standards to provide effective planning, management and control of potential impacts on individuals, communities and the environment during construction of Phase 2a of HS2. This will provide a consistent approach to the management of construction activities across local authority boundaries.
The Draft Code of Construction Practice will evolve and will be amended as necessary during consultation and ongoing design and assessment up to deposit of the hybrid Bill in 2017 and through further engagement throughout the parliamentary process. The document will be finalised at Royal Assent.
