The Phase 1 Environmental Statement consultation finishes next THURSDAY 27th FEBRUARY. Everyone can respond, even if they are not directly affected by Phase 1 –
One of our regular commenters reminds us to “Please compare how your CFA map book construction maps CT-05 -xx series are very different to the Draft maps in May 2013 documents and both are different to the Hybrid Bill maps/plans.”
The consultation website says this about submitting responses:
We’re looking for comments on the environmental statement for the high speed rail route for HS2 Phase One.
This consultation is required by parliamentary rules to allow member of the public and other interested parties to comment on the environmental statement which accompanies the HS2 Phase One hybrid Bill.
The HS2 Phase One environmental statement includes:
- likely significant environmental impacts along the route
- measures to manage and reduce these
Consultation responses will be summarised by an independent assessor appointed by Parliament and used to inform the House of Commons’ debate on the scheme at Second Reading.
A draft version of the environmental statement was consulted on from May to July 2013. Comments received during this consultation have informed the final environmental statement.
Please only use the channels listed below when responding to this consultation. We cannot guarantee that responses sent to any other addresses will be included in this consultation.

Many email providers set a 25MB limit per single emailed response as standard practice to protect against systems failing. We are happy to receive responses over 25MB by alternative means, including via free file sharing sites or on a memory stick sent through the post.
