URGENT – HS2 Route Consultation

I expect most, if not all, Culcheth and Glazebury residents will be aware of the proposed route of HS2 phase 2 and the devastation that its construction is likely to cause us if it is adopted as the final route. Remember that almost 1000 Culcheth homes are within 500m of the proposed track.

The consultation on the route closes at the end of this month (5pm on 31st January 2014). We know the strength of feeling in the village and although the Parish council is currently finalising its own response to the consultation, but we would urge all residents and members of our community to make their own responses before the deadline.

Documents relating to the consultation can be found on the HS2 LTD website here and responses can be made on the online form linked here.

The Culcheth & District Rail Action Group (CADRAG) have produced an excellent draft response which you could use as the basis of your own submission, which you can download directly here: HS2 Route Consultation Response Culcheth

  1. I have read the list of Parliamentary Questions and responses put forward by Helen Jones to the Secretary of state, and listened the local residents and their views with regards to the HS2 linking South to North via Warrington.

    I am not one for stopping progress, however as a resident of Culcheth myself and in view of the fact there are alternatives that may in fact be equal to or even more cost effective, I would prefer to see our village undisturbed.

  2. I live less than 100m to the proposed route & this will have an effect on my property value & noise issues. There is no actual commercial benefit to Culcheth & the disruption to the village will be felt for a long period of time. So I appose the plans
