Dear D Neenan,

Re: Freedom of Information Request

Thank you for your request for information, which was received on 30^th
May 2023.  Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in our
response.

In that request you asked us for information below:
 

• How many responses to the 2021 stage 2 consultation on the Bedford to
Cambridge section included objections to route E?

I can confirm that the search for the information you requested has been
completed and I can advise you of the following:

At East West Railway Company we’ve held two non-statutory public
consultations; one in 2019 which sought views on five broad route options,
and one in 2021 which then explored more detailed proposals and route
alignment options.

During the 2019 non-statutory consultation we received 7000 responses.
This feedback, alongside other technical analysis helped us select Route
Option E as our preferred route option, with people giving it the highest
score on four of our five key criteria: benefits for transport users,
environmental considerations, supporting economic growth and supporting
new homes.

During the 2021 non-statutory consultation we received over 9000
responses, which contained over 160,000 individual comments. Given Route
Option E had already been selected we did not specifically seek feedback
on it. However, of those 160,000 comments there are 1,381 comments that we
have identified expressing opposition for Route E, which is less than 1%
of the total comments received.

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to request a review of our response, you should write to
FOI Review, East West Railway Company Limited, 1 Grafton Gate, Midsummer
Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 1FB, or by email to
[1][email address].

If you are unhappy with the service you have received following an
internal review, you have the right to ask the Information Commissioners
Office (ICO) to review our decision. The Information Commissioner can be
contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. You can find further information on the
ICO website: [2]www.ico.org.uk.

Yours sincerely,

Leanne Nuttall
Information Governance Officer
East West Railway Company
