My party, the Liberal Democrats feel that the benefits of HS2 far outweigh the negatives raised, that often relate to local circumstances. Despite there being a lack of detail we feel that projects like this, which will greatly improve transport, should be supported.
It is always easier to just go against a plan if it causes some negatively. My party believe Councils and the Government need to look to the future whether that be transport or other areas of life.
There is currently a public consultation which ends on July 29. To have your say visit: http://highspeedrail.dft.gov.uk
