High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Bill: Responses to the Environmental Statement consultation

From the 25th November 2013 to 27 February 2014 we asked for comments on the environmental statement for the high speed rail route for HS2 Phase One.

Consultation responses were analysed by an independent assessor appointed by Parliament, and a summary report (opens in a new window/tab) published to inform the House of Commons’ debate on the scheme at the Second Reading.

This website allows you to view consultation responses from organisations, elected representatives and individuals that did not request confidentiality. Personal details have been redacted from responses from individuals unless they have been disclosed within the body of a response, and are listed by User ID.

Responses are displayed in three different groups:
