Sheffield City Council and South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (February 2012)

Following receipt in March of HS2 Ltd’s route, station and depot advice for phase two, the government held a series of confidential listening events with political and economic leaders from the cities and regions that will be served by phase two. These events were held to enable the government to hear directly from the cities and regions concerned about their development and regeneration aspirations, so that they could ascertain how best HS2 can support these. Following these discussions, delivery partners prepared additional written advice for the government’s consideration. Where confidentiality has not been requested, this advice is being published.

This report and accompanying annexes has been prepared by GENECON LLP on behalf of Sheffield City Council and the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive as a formal response to HS2 Ltd station proposal options for South Yorkshire. The report addresses the strategic economic case for alternative HS2 station locations in Sheffield.
