Please see below for our response to the HS2's Draft Environmental Statement
When the original route for Phase 2b was announced in 2013, the line passed to the east of Oakthorpe, around 300m from School Street and the houses on Measham Road. Following concerns with this route, an amendment was consulted on in November 2016. This moved the route east of Measham and removed all impacts on Oakthorpe.
However, due to the responses received to this consultation, the route announced in July 2017 replaced the line west of Measham. Our priorities are ensuring that:
