HS2 Phase 2 - Safeguarding Consultation opens - Lichfield to Crewe

November 2014

HS2
The next stage of consultation for Phase Two of the proposed high speed railway opened last week and runs until 6 January 2015. 
 
This consultation relates to the safeguarding of the section between Fradley (near Lichfield, at the intersection with Phase One) and Crewe.
 
Safeguarding is the process of protecting the anticipated route of the railway from conflicting development and involves the cooperation of the local authorities. Once safeguarded, planning applications must be referred to HS2 Ltd and may be refused if the plans would impede the construction or operation of the railway.
 
The consultation seeks comment on some elements of the safeguarding process, including the limits of the safeguarded area. This is usually a 120 metre strip of land centred on the railway line, but is wider in certain places, such as where deep embankments are required or on the approach to tunnels.
 
We understand that the route consultation earlier this year has been taken into account when producing plans of the proposed safeguarded zone from Fradley to Crewe. We are continuing to study the plans, but at this stage it seems that few significant changes have been made.
 
It should be noted that at this stage no provision has been made to safeguard areas for proposed highways alterations, for instance for new bridges, but this will follow at a later date.
 
If your property is affected it is important to remain up to date with developments. Future compensation availability will differ depending on whether your property lies within the safeguarded area or not. 
 
We will let you know as soon as plans are released showing the proposed safeguarded area north of Crewe.
