Welcome to the website of Whitmore2Madeley HS2 Action Group, representing the parishes of Whitmore, Baldwin’s Gate and Madeley.
Our mission is to minimise the devastation of the local communities and surrounding countryside and to reduce the disruption to local and commuter traffic that will result from the construction of the HS2 train-line between Whitmore and Madeley.
Many people who live in Whitmore, Baldwin’s Gate, Madeley Park Wood, Woore and Keele as well as anyone using the local road network (A53 etc) will be detrimentally affected by the construction phase, which will last for at least 5 years.
Our goal is to safeguard our beautiful countryside, its peaceful Ancient Woodlands and all the wildlife, which makes its home here, by persuading the Government to build a longer, deeper tunnel (Option D9-11.3 in the HS2 Environmental Statement). This option has currently not been adopted but you can change this by responding to the latest consultation, which closes on 30th September!
