An alliance of environmental and transport NGOs has developed a charter challenging the government’s HS2 high-speed rail plans

An alliance of environmental and transport NGOs has developed a charter challenging the government’s 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.
