High Speed 2
HS2: Camden Council secures over 100 assurances from the Secretary of State
Camden Council has secured over 100 assurances on key measures that will help protect the lives and livelihoods of its residents and businesses from more than a decade of the worst aspects of High Speed 2 (HS2) construction.
These agreements came ahead of Camden Council’s Select Committee appearance on Tuesday, 1 December 2015. By the end of the committee hearing we had reached agreements on air quality, heritage and the Code of Construction Practice (CoCP). You can now read these assurances too.
We have produced a summary of the Assurances we have secured. We have also submitted a list of suggestions to the HS2 Select Committee aimed at making the negotiations and processes relating to hybrid Bill schemes more productive and better value for money.
Our position on HS2
Camden Council opposes plans for HS2 as currently proposed. If the Government does go ahead with the scheme, Camden is committed to fighting for the best deal for our communities.
