Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Decision:

a)    that the consultation response as set out in the appendix of the officer’s report be approved for submission to HS2, and brought into effect from 26 November 2018.

 

b)    that authority be delegated to the Chief Executive, in consultation with the Leader and Portfolio Holder, to approve any minor drafting amendments to the consultation response.

 

REASON FOR DECISION

 

To enable the Council to inform HS2 of the Council’s concerns, to encourage opportunities to expand the economic benefits of the new infrastructure and highlight the key changes required to the proposals to mitigate the impact on the district.

 

ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS CONSIDERED AND REASONS FOR REJECTION

 

The alternative option was not to submit comments to HS2. This was not recommended as it would have been a lost opportunity to put forward for consideration the Council’s views on the impact of HS2 on the district’s communities, environment and economy.
