We are on our way-thanks to you

We have had a brilliant response to our appeals for funds for taking legal action over the January 2012 decision on HS2.  In a matter of a few weeks thousands of ordinary people in communities from London to Staffordshire and beyond have responded to the appeals, giving most generously, and raising the six figure sum that was needed.

HS2AA are now able to announce that we can proceed with two judicial reviews.  One deals with environmental issues, and the other is about fighting for a fair deal for compensation. In both cases the Government failed to follow the proper processes required – if they had they would have reached a different conclusion.

We have two strong legal teams who are specialists in their fields and believe we have two powerful cases that Government must now answer.  SJ Berwins with David Elvin, QC, of Landmark Chambers are handling our environmental case, and Leigh Day & Co with David Wolfe, QC, of Matrix Chambers our compensation case.

HS2AA Ltd are the claimant and working with a wide range of resident groups, societies, parish councils, action groups, and environmental groups.

What this has shown is that the opposition movement has got even stronger as a result of the 10 January decision to proceed with HS2.  Ordinary people are frustrated that the Government are not listening and are joining together to fight this unacceptable waste of taxpayer’s money.
