HS2 – Amersham Action Group

This group recently linked to us. I’ve added it to our HS2 – The Basics web page and elevated the HS2 Basics link to the top of the ‘Background’ part of our main HS2 page (that’s the page that links to everything HS2).

If you don’t like navigating menus, you might prefer to use ‘Search this site’ (at the top right of each page) if you’re after something in particular.

HS2 vs LBH 3rd July 10am public hearing. Can you come?

Can you get to a public hearing in the Civic Centre on July 3rd starting @ 10:00 to consider HS2’s Appeal against LBH for refusing to approve its wetland mitigation proposal?

HS2 is attempting to mitigate bulldozing 27ha wet woodland and chalk rivers, home to over 2400 species, by replacing it with a 0.85ha pond and basking bank set up for great crested newt and grass snake.

It claims NO NET LOSS to biodiversity. Hopefully the image below will help set the perspective.

Please come if you can and support the Council and everyone wanting to preserve this special area.

Thanks
