If you are concerned about any part of HS2, even the parts which haven’t been designed yet, this is
your one and only chance to take part in a formal consultation on the principle of High speed Rail in
the UK. Many people are concerned about various aspects of HS2, but if you stay quiet now, you will
not have a chance to take part in a consultation like this later.
Whatever the flaws in the HS2 consultation, and whatever the bias in the questions, this is the only
consultation like this that the Department for Transport will hold. When the Y-Route is finally
announced, this, the one and only consultation on the principle of HS2 will have been and gone. All the Department for Transport and HS2 Ltd will be interested in are minor tweaks, just like the
minor tweaks they have made on the route between London and Birmingham.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE If you do just one thing to help Stop HS2, filling in the consultation has to
be it! We want people to reply in their own words (do not copy and paste) but it can be as simple as saying ‘No’ to the first five questions,providing your name and postcode. You can download a consultation form from here, or fill in the online form.
Remember when answering the questions, make your opposition to HS2 clear. Make sure you say
you think HS2 is a bad idea. We’ve suggested many things to think about, but you will have concerns
about the different aspects yourself. Please make them clear to the Department for Transport and
