News from the local Liberal Democrats

    Article: Apr 22, 2021

    A survey of Amersham residents that ended this week shows there is considerable concern about how the town centre will recover as the country eases out of lockdown.

  • HS2 works small
    Article: Apr 21, 2021
    By Paul Harding, Unitary Candidate for Chiltern Ridges and Asheridge Vale Candidate for Chesham Town Council

    HS2 sometimes seems like an unstoppable juggernaut powering through our valleys and our communities. Controversy has followed the project since it was conceived, and even before it first broke ground, the initial justifications had shifted and were dissolving.

    If those calculations were already in doubt back then, how much more so now? Part of the justification for HS2 was to do with Heathrow. HS2, it was argued, would negate the need for a third runway and all the extra air traffic that a third runway would imply. In addition, HS2 connecting to central London in Euston would mean that high-speed rail would run from Manchester to Paris (and beyond). Much of the revenues from HS2 passengers were projected to be from premium fare business travellers, travelling for face-to-face meetings. The project would be well regulated, ensuring that the environment would be respected through oversight from the Environment Agency (EA) and Natural England, as promised to Parliament through HS2's Environmental Statement. Risks and pressures on aquifers, local communities, and animal habitats would be dealt with responsibly under the law. Budgets would be controlled.
