Warwickshire appears at HS2 Select Committee

Warwickshire County Council appeared before Parliament  on Monday (January 18) to present its case against HS2 Ltd’s amendments to the original legislation to build the railway.

The county council issued two petitions on the amendments to the hybrid bill, known as Additional Provisions, to seek better outcomes and lessen the impact of HS2 on Warwickshire residents. The petitions are available to read here.

The authority has petitioned on highways issues, ecology matters and potential flood risk. Other concerns were raised about specific local issues such as the railhead site at Kingsbury, construction traffic near Stoneleigh and the provision of a cycleway linking Ladbroke and Southam.

The HS2 Select Committee will make final decisions at a future date.
