If you are one of the 1925 individuals who have lodged a petition in Parliament against the high-speed rail project HS2 then you are welcome to an event organised by South Northamptonshire Council (SNC).
They have invited their parliamentary agent, Alastair Lewis from Sharp Pritchard, to lead an information session.
He will make a presentation on the HS2 Select Committee which will cover the Select Committee membership, process and procedure and provide an insight into proceedings to date. He will also guide delegates on how best to present to the Committee and the most appropriate evidence to provide.
It is likely that petitions made by those in South Northamptonshire will be heard in early 2015, and this free session is being provided to assist those in preparing for an appearance before the Select Committee.
Places are strictly limited and priority will be given to those individuals, businesses and parishes in South Northants and Cherwell districts who have lodged a petition in parliament. The event is due to take place on Wednesday 12 November 2014. Coffee will be served from 4.45pm, with the event commencing at 5.15pm. The session will end at 7.00pm.
To reserve your space, please respond by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
