HS2 will soon be coming to destroy our villages & countryside. Support our campaign to minimise the effects of HS2 on our communities.
A United Voice
The Whitmore2Madeley HS2 Group is the official voice of Whitmore & Madeley and has the full support of the respective Parish Councils and our local MP Sir Bill Cash. The group was formed in August 2017 as a united voice to represent the interests of both communities.
“The Whitmore to Madeley Tunnel (LDT) has been discounted by the government on the grounds of cost.”
The feasibility of The Whitmore to Madeley Tunnel (LDT) has been investigated by HS2 and the Government Select Committee but the option has been dismissed on the grounds of cost, despite representions made by our MP Sir Bill Cash, the County, Borough and Parish councils and a number of local residents.
The role of our group has changed! The Whitmore to Madeley Tunnel option has been rejected. Our role is now to represent the interests of our communities in the face of HS2. We will be negotiating with HS2 to mitigate the effect of the project, ensuring they adhere to their committments and holding them to account when they don’t!
