I have been very much involved in the campaign since being elected and I regularly talk to campaign groups and residents about HS2. I also send out updates every 4-6 months. I continue to question the entire project as I believe the HS2 business case does not stack up. Furthermore, and regardless of the business case, I do not think that the mitigations so far described to lessen the impact of HS2 around Tamworth or the compensation proposals to deal with the blight affect on many homes and businesses is sufficient or acceptable. People should not lose out simply for living in the wrong place at the wrong time. Below is a list of some of my previous actions relating to HS2.
For more information on the proposals and to see the routes please go to either the Department for Transport's website or HS2 Ltd.'s website. If you would like to join my mailing list on HS2 please sign up by emailing me.
