During the passage of the High Speed Rail (London to West Midlands) Bill through Parliament, the focus of this particular forum, ran by Ted Allett, is to discuss route wide principles, standards, practices and processes associated with environmental health matters. These minutes detail exactly what was discussed and distributed accordingly to the appropriate members.
The forum members meet every 2 months with a forward programme of agenda items.
The HS2 (High Speed Two) Phase One planning forum was established in May 2013 in advance of the submission of the HS2 Hybrid Bill. The HS2 Phase One planning forum acts as the primary vehicle for liaison between the HS2 project and local authorities along the HS2 Phase One route between London and the West Midlands on matters of cross boundary and route-wide interest.
