Trust hits out at Pri­ory plan

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

THE NA­TIONAL Trust has hit out at HS2 plans for its line through York­shire to pass within 400m of park­land around its Nostell Pri­ory near Wake­field.

Jenny Lay­field, Gen­eral Man­ager at Nostell, said: “We wel­come HS2’s plans for land­scap­ing, wood­land and wet­land habi­tat cre­ation around Nostell but we feel much more can be done to alle­vi­ate the im­pact of the rail­way on Nostell and cre­ate at­trac­tive, ac­ces­si­ble green space.”

She said the Trust has shared mit­i­ga­tion plans drawn up by land­scape ar­chi­tects with HS2.
