Demo in Northampton on Thursday 17th March

We’ve been asked to let you know about this demonstration, which is being organised by SNAG.

They say:

“Demonstration outside the Northampton County Council Offices Thurs. 17th March 9.45-10.30. Please support this protest.

“Northants County Council has been slow to recognise that its original position of supporting HS2 whilst opposing Route 3 is irrational and unsustainable. There is an open council meeting at which speakers put forward by SNAG will be seeking to get the NCC position changed and a proper assessment made of the relative merits of RP2 & HS2 in the the interests of the county.  We want as many people as possible for a demonstration for the media and arriving councillors to ensure they start to get the message.

“We will assemble at 9.45 am and disperse in time for those who wish to enter the council offices for the 10.30 start of the meeting. We will supply some placards and leaflets, but if you have your own material please bring it along.

We will shortly be posting location & parking details on the SNAG website http://www.snag-against-hs2.org/ . Any other queries contact: snag-against-hs2@hotmail.co.uk

The location of the demo is County Hall, Northampton, NN1 1ED.

  1. I have examined the document which Northamptonshire County Councillors will be reviewing on March 17th. It is generally well researched (66 documents references in the bibliography).

    However I was alarmed to see the journey time savings table in section 4.6.1. Its journey time savings for trips from London to Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow are in error by between 52 and 59 minutes. It also provides journey time savings as a result of introducing HS2 for London – Cardiff, London – Bristol and Manchester – Newcastle. All rather strange…… It makes no mention that the time savings relate to the introduction of Phases 1 and 2, not just Phase 1.
