Earlier this week HS2 deposited in Parliament a proposed set of amendments for Phase 2A from Birmingham to Crewe in the form of an Additional Provision (AP2) and Additional Provision Environmental Statement (AP2 ES).
Following the success of the last round of the Countryside Small Productivity Grant Scheme Michael Gove has announced another round will open in early 2019. Rostons, as Land Agents in Cheshire helped a number of Clients to successfully apply for the grant in the last round and will look to help more this time.
The HS2 Phase 2B working draft Environmental Statement has been published today (11th October 2018). The Environmental Statement is a substantial assessment of the impact of the proposed scheme which has to be submitted as part of the Hybrid Bill. The draft Environmental Statement details the loss of residential/commercial property, damage to protective species and habitats, impact of noise and visual impact and the affect on farm businesses.
