HS2 petitioning – update

  • 29 May 2014
  • Hs2

The deadline to hand in petitions against HS2 closed last Friday, 23 May. Nearly 2000 petitions were submitted with many from Harefield and Ickenham handed in too.  I handed in nearly 40 petitions to Westminster on behalf of local residents and submitted my own petition as the local MP, outlining the key campaigns for:

  1. Better compensation
  2. Extension of the proposed tunnel, ideally to the other side of the Colne Valley
  3. Dropping of the option to build a spur down to Heathrow
  4. Preservation of HOAC

Please click here to see a copy of my petition submitted.

The Committee is expected to start its evidence-taking meetings in July, although preliminary planning meetings may take place at an earlier stage.

More information on the next stage of the process and all petitions can be found on the parliament website here.

Please do not hesitate to contact my office if you have any queries.

Best Regards
