Draft Maps of proposed high voltage electricity transmission to power HS2 Phase 2a, Parkgate Project

The request was refused by High Speed Two (HS2) Limited.

Cllr Bethan Waite

Dear High Speed Two (HS2) Limited,
At your public engagement event on 19 October at Abbots Bromley Village Hall, you showed the public several detailed maps of the current proposals to power HS2 Phase 2a from a new substation at Parkgate near Newborough. I and others planning to petition Government regarding these proposals request access to these maps, preferably in electronic format. We appreciate that these are DRAFT plans, and understand that they may change. As a public authority, I believe you have a duty to share these maps with local people who may be affected by the draft plans. Requests to photograph the maps at today's "drop in" session were denied, something I feel is completely anti-democratic and absolutely not in the spirit of open public consultation.

Yours faithfully,
Cllr Bethan Waite, Chairman, Newborough Parish Council

Sorry HS2 Ltd? This request is asking for a digital version of INFORMATION YOU HAVE ALREADY PUBLISHED. Someone could easily have been at the event in question and taken a photo. Maybe someone did. Maybe people looked at the information you had on display with the eyes.

Seriously, do you not get this? You can't refuse to publish something you've already published!
