Compensation and Route Refinement  - Response Templates

  • HS2 Route Consultation Response – HS2 have confirmed that we should respond to this consultation, even through it has not been formally announced for our area, with responses due by 9 March 2017

  • HS2 Compensation Consultation – our last opportunity to influence the woeful compensation arrangements the Government has proposed, we demand full compensation for our financial loss and reasonable compensation for the impact, again responses due by 9 March 2017

  • Sign the petitionTake action now - sign our petition here to protect your future.

  • Write or email our MP – Alec Shelbrooke needs to understand that we are not happy with the current proposals and that we need him to stop HS2, he currently doesn’t appreciate the scale of opposition as his mailbox has been too quiet since the November announcement

  • Write or email LCC Executive – Judith Blake and Keith Wakefield need to be held accountable for the hardship and destruction they have inflicted on our villages. The lack of representation from Cllr Karen Bruce has done little to influence her council. Tom Riordan needs to hear our voice

  • Spread the word – tell your family, friends and neighbours, shout about it on Twitter, Facebook and social media, display our flyer in your window, encourage everyone to object to HS2 by completing their online forms, written forms, or a simple letter – every UK resident anywhere in the country has the right to say no
