David response reflects his own views as well as those expressed to him by individual constituents, local action groups and Parish Councils. David also held meetings with HS2 Ltd and the Secretary of State for Transport to discuss the Environmental Statement before submitting his response.
In his response David calls for:
Improved mitigation measures at Wendover Dean and Dunsmore to mitigate the impact of the proposed 18m high viaduct
HS2 Ltd to urgently resolve the outstanding noise impact on St Mary’s Church in Wendover
Increased tunnelling in the Chilterns AONB but with local agreement on the location of any tunnel portal north of Wendover.
Additional mitigation measures to ensure that the residents of Stoke Mandeville and the Hawkslade estate in Aylesbury do not experience any significant noise impact from HS2
The mitigation measures for Fairford Leys to be in keeping with the local area and have local support.
My response to the Environmental Statement consultation reflects my own views as well as those expressed to me by my constituents. I hope the Department for Transport and HS2 Ltd take note of the views expressed in responses to the consultation and commit to making changes to the design of scheme to reflect the views of those most affected by HS2.
