51m – Local Authorities against HS2

Thirteen local authorities including Bucks County Council have joined together in a national campaign to actively challenge the HS2 scheme. They are known as “51m” because that represents how much HS2 will cost each and every Parliamentary Constituency £51million. The group want to emphasise the impact this proposed scheme will have on every taxpayer in the country for years to come. Their website at www.51m.co.uk is an excellent source of information about HS2 and what we can do about it. Remember that the Government’s HS2 consultation ends on 29th July – make sure you have your say.
