HS2AA hears back from Aarhus

The UN Environmental Committee now questions the UK Government.

Following HS2AA’s appearance at the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee hearing in Geneva in March this year, the Committee has now written to HS2AA and the UK Government asking a series of questions on the decision making process for HS2; in particular around alternative options, their environmental implications, and when information was made available to the public for comment.

HS2AA will be responding to these questions and the UK Government will then be given the opportunity to comment.

The Aarhus Compliance Committee will consider both responses at its meeting in December.
