HS2 Campaign

 

The route of the proposed HS2 London to Birmingham passes close to the village.

 

Little Kingshill Village Society strongly opposed the construction of the high speed railway through the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

 

We continue to closely monitor the impact HS2 has on the Chilterns as the eight year construction period progresses and work with HS2 review groups in the AONB and in the Colne Valley with a view to reducing the disruption the railway will bring to local communities and the environment.

 

In addition we publish regular email updates on latest developments to keep communities informed.

 

Further information can be found from the Stop HS2 Campaign: Contacts: Penny Gaines, Chair & Social Media Director;

Pot Holes

 

Several of the roads through the village have an unacceptable level of pot holes, potentially hazardous, particularly to cyclists, and damaging to cars.
