Village Responses from the HS2 Update Meeting

Thank you to everyone that sent in responses to the questions put forward by the parish council regarding the specific effects of HS2 construction HGV traffic on individuals, homes and businesses etc. I could not reply to you all but I have collated all the responses I received to produce a document that runs 20 pages and 10,000 words long! The HS2 Action Group will use this to assist them in drafting a parliamentary petition this week. Your responses are a great help and hopefully the Action Group can work many of your concerns into the debate. The petiton will be delivered to parliament on August 12th. Stay tuned.
