The HS2 consultation closed at midnight last night.
Stop Hs2 would like to thank everyone who submitted responses opposing HS2. Some of them will be very long, others very short, but every single one will make a difference.
We’d also like to thank the thousands of people who helped to get those responses. Numerous people have helped out during the shadow road shows, taken forms out, posted leaflets through doors. You’ve written letters, and got friends and relatives to respond. You’ve made sure people know what the issues are, you’ve handed out leaflets, you’ve talked to people.
Of course, this is only part of the campaign. There is still much to be done.
We will need to maintain the pressure on the Department for Transport, on Philip Hammond, on David Cameron and on local MPs and councillors.
But we have reached the end of one stage and can look ahead to the next…
