Con­sul­ta­tion at ev­ery stage of HS2

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

Re: ‘HS2 has no signs of democ­racy’, (Ad­ver­tiser, let­ters page, Jan­uary 8) MR Bishop com­plains no­body was con­sulted, he is wrong, ev­ery point he raised con­cern­ing the vil­lage has been con­sulted upon.

The Stop HS2 cam­paign has been, and still is, fight­ing this pro­posal. The parish coun­cil of­fice pur­chase has been can­celled, as re­ported in this pa­per. The traf­fic calm­ing mea­sures are still be­ing for­malised, no decision has been made. At the elec­tions in May, sev­eral places on the parish coun­cil will be avail­able and the re­main­ing coun­cil­lors want peo­ple con­cerned about the vil­lage to come for­ward.

There is no po­lit­i­cal af­fil­i­a­tion and the duty only re­quires a few hours per month.
