Almost £600k awarded to Bucks to offset HS2 disruption

HS2 Rendering

5:47am 3rd January 2018

£595,778 has been awarded so far in Buckinghamshire to offset disruption caused by building HS2.

That's according to the Under-Secretary of State for Transport Paul Maynard.

He said 12 applications had been made to the HS2 Community and Environment fund so far, and of those, 6 were successful.

MP for Chesham and Amersham Cheryl Gillan had asked the Secretary of State for Transport for the information.

Paul Maynard's response in full:

"To date, 12 applications to the HS2 Community and Environment Fund in Buckinghamshire have been determined. Of these, 6 were successful and the total amount of the awards offered, or to be offered, is £595,778.

"These awards are subject to terms and conditions, and as such, not all have been accepted by the applicants at this stage. For this reason, they are not listed here.

"It is anticipated that an announcement will be made in early 2018 with news of the first accepted awards made and their locations.

"Following this announcement, it is intended that there will be quarterly newsletters and website updates sharing the latest information on approved projects and allocated funding geographically, along with an interactive map and case studies."
