POS Supports Prospect of Planning Forums for HS2

Date: 20/1/2012

John Silvester, Spokesperson for POS, told Planning magazine that "the prospect of planning forums for HS2 is welcomed in so far as it will enable planning officers to gain a better appreciation and understanding of the works involved and the implications; equally HS2 Ltd will be able to gain a better appreciation of local authority concerns."

It is recognised that many of the affected local authorities may want to raise objections to aspects of the proposal and indeed mount legal challenges "but his does not prevent officers from playing an impartial role in the process", Silvester added.
