  1. Aarhus Convention exchanges demonstrate different recollections of event which left people without effective changes and mitigation

    The following documents and links provide the exchanges between the UK and ACCC and between the Complainants and ACCC.

    Vote for more compliance with decision making in the formulation of such projects not after the event with lack of effectiveness please.

    The first link is the complaint submission which can be shorter with 10 to 20 pages and upto 5 attachments.

    The UK response does not explain how many people were mislead into believing petitioning would be an effective change process but found it was curbed from the inside. What pretence the many people have experienced by the lock out process that has followed 2009 and 2010 determination of Route 3 and the lack of commitment of the HS2 to alternatives. Request alternatives in your petition presentations to demonstrate how you feel that the HOC Hybrid Bill Select Committee accepted the curbs against the Aarhus Convention intent please. It is more important to have democracies to behave according to treaties and conventions not to avoid their obligations to the public and international bodies please.
