HS2 Phase 2a safeguarding impact assessment

Impact assessment for safeguarding of the HS2 Phase 2a route between the West Midlands and Crewe.



The benefits of safeguarding are that it will reduce the risk of developers potentially making investments that subsequently cannot progress or have to be compulsorily purchased (at a cost to the taxpayer) as a result of High Speed Two (HS2) if the railway ultimately proceeds.
