HS2 document was opportunistic
A CASE of cynical timing by HS2?
In case you haven’t noticed the devious HS2 have struck again choosing the Christmas break to for their actions.
On December 16 a Public Notice was issued described as ‘Supplementary Environmental Information’ was published in the Gazette accompanied by a ‘Have Your Say’ consultation document.
Described as an ‘Equality impact assessment update’ this document is full of totally irrelevant data regarding the population affected.
The boroughs going in the direction of Euston are permitted the protection of a tunnel, while this is denied to Ruislip and Ickenham. A clear case of unequal treatment by HS2.
The ruling by the HS2 subcommittee was quite wrong, their judgement criteria were based only on cost, when it should have been assessed on all the evidence submitted.
The effect of the construction phase will cause unlimited damage to the resident’s health and welfare, and must be reversed.
These two documents were deliberately published over the Christmas break period hoping nobody would notice.
The have your say consultation was dated December 12 however it was not notified to the public until December 16 and closes on Friday January 22.
This allows far too short a time for the public to consider, to investigate and respond to it.
As Parliament was in recess public contact with their MPs was not possible.
This is just another attempt by HS2 to stifle any criticism and keep the victims of this nightmare project uninformed about their methods.
