The HS2 environmental consultation closes on Thursday.
Although not directly affecting Bexley, this proposal is impacting on homes in London and on important conservation sites throughout its route. It is important that major projects (particularly if of dubious value) don’t get to ride roughshod over legislation designed to protect wildlife and the environment – but time and time again we do see this important issues ignored.
It is important to contribute to these consultations, as we are seeing in Bexley too, so as to ensure environmental issues are not just ignored.

There’s a simple ‘fill in your name etc. and click’ option so that you can send standard comments to the Minister responsible. Alternatively, there is access to more comprehensive information if you wish to give a more detailed response.
It took me less than a minute to express my concerns about the environmental damage.
