Ongoing 2020:

Approximately every 3 months an "HS2 Liaison Group Meeting" is held. Until the Covid19 lockdown started, these were held at the SNC offices in The Forum, Towcester. More recently, those meetings have been held using Microsoft Teams.

All local Parish Councils affected by HS2 can discuss the issues they are facing. Various representatives from the government and its assorted contractors working on HS2 are present to answer any queries. Aston le Walls Parish Council regularly sends representatives to join these meetings.

Draft notes of each HS2 Liaison Group Meeting (and many more HS2 related documents) have been collated by Evenly Parish Council and can be found at the foot of their page HERE
