The following videos were filmed at a public meeting organised by the Stoke Mandeville HS2 action group. They show the speech given by Marcus Rogers, Head of Planning, Environment and Development for Bucks County Council.
Marcus makes it clear that problems that HS2 causes in one area have knock on effects in completely different places: for this reason, we encourage everyone responding to the consultation to highlight local (or not so local) issues about the route.
He also explains what HS2 Ltd’s plans means for the Aylesbury area, including information about some of the roads which will be diverted, and other local impacts.
Of particular interest is that Marcus says that HS2 Ltd are not using the most recent maps about development in the Aylesbury area. Marcus also highlighted the uncertainties HS2 will cause to waste transfer out of London.
They are well worth watching, even if you don’t know the area.
