19th January 2018 – today HS2 released the first image of the Colne Valley viaduct
They suggest that there will now be discussions with local communities about it. Up till now the local community has not been involved despite this being a main point of “discussion” since 2011. Today they thanked the local community for help. We haven’t had a chance to give any help so feel this is misleading. HS2 have apologised but are yet to alter Facebook or twitter and if this was mentioned in press releases etc it is now too late.
Hillingdon Against HS2 are still very much active but our remit has changed.
In order that we we can engage with HS2 Ltd. and their contractors in a productive way, we have decided we will now be representing you by becoming known as HIllingdon HS2 Resident Support Group in conjunction with our work with Hillingdon Council and local Resident Associations. We continue to be an active part of Stop HS2 and the national campaign.
