High Speed 2
HS2: Camden Council secures further assurances from the Secretary of State
Camden Council secured a package of agreements, known as assurances, before our House of Lords Select Committee appearance on 6 September 2016. These assurances recognise that HS2 Ltd needs to do more to address the proposed High Speed 2 (HS2) railway scheme’s impact on Camden, and will help to hold HS2 Ltd to account.
We have published the final assurances letter we received from HS2 Ltd (14 September). We still do not accept that HS2 Ltd's assurances on materials by rail and Euston Station comprehensive redevelopment go far enough to address the concerns raised in our petition. The two assurances were offered on an open, unconditional basis and did not require the Council to withdraw its case at Select Committee.
