HS2 Working Draft Environmental Statement Consultation Response Guide

The consultation on HS2's Working Draft Environmental Statement closes this Friday, 21 December 2018, at 23:45 hours.  

Please find attached below my Consultation Response Guide to help you to respond to the consultation if you have not already done so.  

This guide is intended to remove the need to read all the documentation in order to respond to the consultation.  It contains information drawn from Volumes 1 – 4, the Non-Technical Summary and information previously provided by HS2 and can be easily navigated by using the links at the top of the guide.     

Description of the Proposed Route describes what permanent changes HS2 will make to the area and what will happen during the construction of HS2. 

Environmental Impacts sets out the likely impact HS2 will have on the local environment and what HS2 proposes to do in order to mitigate these impacts.    

Consultation Response provides a model consultation response which you are free to use in its entirety or cut-and-paste from, as you choose. 

I understand that the fields in the online response form limit answers to 4,000 words so I would advise you to submit your response by e-mail to environment2b@ipsos-mori.com.  I would be grateful if you could also copy in Mark Bowman (bowmanm@parliament.uk) so that I have a copy of your response.   

Although the Secretary of State has refused to formally extend the consultation closure date into the New Year, he has agreed to ensure that any further responses that I receive before 8 January 2019 will be considered by HS2. 

Therefore if, after submitting your initial response, you have further comments to make, please send or e-mail these to my office by Monday, 7 January 2019 at the latest and I will ensure that they are forwarded to the Secretary of State for HS2’s consideration. 

If you have any queries or need any assistance with the consultation response, please do not hesitate to contact Mark Bowman on 020 7219 6671 or bowmanm@parliament.uk.
