National charities agree HS2 charter

A charter has been designed to hold the government to account on its HS2 high-speed rail plans

An alliance of environmental charities and transport organisations has developed a charter designed to hold the government to account on its HS2 high-speed rail plans.

The group includes the RSPB, Greenpeace, Campaign to Protect Rural England, Campaign for Better Transport, Friends of the Earth, Environmental Law Foundation, The Wildlife Trust, Woodland Trust, Civic Voice and the Chiltern Society.

The charter sets out four core principles “for doing high speed rail well”, calling for a national transport strategy, better future-proofing of big transport proposals, effective public participation and a more strategic approach to minimising environmental impacts.
