A new three week long session in the House of Commons begins today looking at the fine details of both sides of HS-2 plan - those promoting it and those raising concerns.

From 2pm today (Tuesday 1 July), the Select Committee chairman will open the session and it's expected HS-2 Limited will make it's opening statement tomorrow - describing in small detail the route as authorised by the Bill

Tomorrow Wednesday, the CPRE, the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England will be demonstrating to the Select Committee their digital mapping fo the line.  The CPRE have created three maps providing detailed information about phase 1 (London to Birmingham), and outline information for phase 2.

Next Tuesday (8th), HS-2 will explain how they will measure noise and their approach to noise mitigation measures.
 
From next Thursday (10th) - they'll be challenges to HS-2 by groups including HS2 Action Aliance.
 
After a break the hearings will reform in September to hear about property and compensation and will mainly concentrate on the Midlands end of the first half of the line.
