Following the petition submitted to HS2 Ltd in November 2015, with regards to the proposed amendment to the temporary A425 diversion, Mayer Brown attended a Locus Standi hearing in the House of Commons to discuss the developer’s position and grounds for appealing to Additional Provision 4 (AP4). The hearing took place on 12th January 2016, presenting the argument as to why the amendment to the road diversion influenced ability to provide access to the Stoneythorpe Village site, particularly during the construction period of HS2.
The hearing was a positive one for Mayer Brown, with MPs supporting our goal of working with HS2. We were provided with the opportunity to request amendments to the HS2 plans in order to allow the Stoneythorpe development to come forward during the HS2 construction period. Discussions are continuing with HS2 to finalise agreements with regards to aligning their proposal with that of the Stoneythorpe Village development, thus ensuring that work on the eco-village can continue to progress.
Please leave us your details and we will endeavour to call you back as soon as we can.
