HS2 Final Environmental Statement

The Government have now launched the Final Environmental statement. While it is a daunting 50,000 pages, HHVS encourage you to take the time to read the sections of the document that apply to Hyde Heath and the immediate area. All documents can be downloaded online at the following location -


A good starting point is the Non Technical Summary. Hyde Heath is contained in the section known as the "Central Chilterns" and referred to on Maps as CFA9. The Volume 2: Area Reports contain links to the maps and local area reports. The links for Hyde Heath related documents are: CFA9 - Central Chilterns Area Report and CFA9 - Central Chilterns Map Book

There is also a guide to the Final ES and how it breaks down, how you can respond and the fact you must have your deadline responses in by 24th January 2014. Contained here -


While the contents are daunting, HHVS are undertaking substantial work on getting to grips with the document and understanding its content and what it means for the residents of Hyde Heath. We will be running drop in clincs early in the New Year to explain matters in more detail and how people can respond to the consultation.

Meanwhile, printed copies of all the information and maps are available at the following locations in the district -

1. Chiltern District Council, King George V House, King George V Road, Amersham, Buckinghamshire, HP6 5AW

2. Little Missenden Parish Council, 38 New Pond Road, Holmer Green, Buckinghamshire, HP15 6SU

3. Great Missenden Parish Council, Memorial Centre, Buryfield, Link Road, Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, HP16 9AE

4. The Lee Parish Council, 40 Waivers Way, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, HP21 9SQ

5. Amersham Library, Chiltern Avenue, Amersham, Buckinghamshire, HP6 5AH

Its important we all make an effort to read and make some form of response to this document. HHVS will be doing this in detail, but we encourage residents to make their own response, no matter how long or short, they all count.
