HS2 measures to be debated at next Council meeting.
A hard-hitting package of measures to help tackle the impact of HS2 in Erewash will be discussed by councillors at a meeting of Erewash Borough Council’s Executive at Long Eaton Town Hall next week.
The council’s proposed Mitigation Plan is part of the continuing work to get the best possible deal for local residents and businesses and has been drawn up in response to HS2 Ltd’s consultation on its draft Environmental Statement released last month.
In an introduction to the Plan, the council says that, despite HS2 making it clear that Long Eaton, Sandiacre and the Trent Valley would be adversely affected, its latest suggestions do nothing to reduce the major impact the project will have on the borough.
Now councillors will be asked to agree a straight-talking response that outlines the vital measures that Erewash Borough Council wants in place to deal with key issues like traffic, demolition of homes, compensation for home owners and the impact on Long Eaton town centre – which will be the worst affected by HS2.
